If there are no extras, then only 30 balls will be bowled. If there are extras, more balls will be bowled depending on the number of extras.

How many 8 ball overs were bowled in a day?

Assuming that test matches went for the same time (not necessarily starting at 10:30 or 11:00 and going to 5:30 or 6:00, but lasting for seven hours), in an uninterrupted days play, we can calculate how many eight ball overs were bowled in a day. This question will give varying answers. Teams either move faster or slower through their overs depending on whether they bowl spin bowlers or pace bowlers, and how many wides or no balls are bowled. For the calculation, lets assume they bowled the equivalent of 90 six ball overs, thirty per session. 90 six ball overs means a total of 540 balls bowled throughout the day. If they bowled in eight ball overs, then the number of overs would be 540/8, which is 67.4 overs, halfway through the 68th over.

Who has bowled the most number of maiden overs in an 50 overs match?

I would guess it would be 'Phil Simmons'. He bowled 8 maiden overs (out of 10) in an ODI against Pakistan. His bowling figures for that match was 10-8-3-4 (10 overs, 8 maiden, 3 runs and 4 wickets).

How to calculate Net run rate in cricket?

A team's run rate (RR) is their total number of runs divided by overs faced. As an over is made up of six balls, each ball counts for 1/6 of an over for the purposes of calculating the net run rate, despite being normally written in cricket's notation as .1 of an over.So if a team scores 250 runs off 50 overs then their runrate is ??. If they got that same score off 47.5 overs, their RR would be ??The concept of net run rate involves taking the opponents' final run rate away from the team's run rate. The only complication is that if a team is bowled out, it is not the balls faced which their score is divided by; instead the full quota of overs is used (e.g. 50 overs for a one day international and 20 overs for a Twenty20 match).Usually, runs and overs bowled are summed together throughout a season to compare teams in a league table

How do you tell who has won in one day cricket?

The same way you would any other cricket match.If a match is limited-overs (such as Twenty20 or ODI), then a team has a set number of overs to accumulate runs. When those overs are played, the innings ends regardless of the number of wickets remaining. Ans a team can still be rendered all out prior to the last over. Regardless of how the first innings ends, if the second team can overtake the first one's run total before running out of wickets or overs, they win (and the margin would be by wickets). Otherwise, the first team win (and the margin would be by runs)

Where can one purchase balls for cricket?

Cricket balls can be purchased at many outdoor sports stores. Any place that sells sports equipment would be likely to have them. You can also order them from stores like Wal-Mart as well.

In cricket can you get two people out in 1?

In cricket you can't get two people out in one movement like (for example) what happens in baseball. However if a bowler bowled a wide or a no-ball it is possible that a batsman might get out and then when the "replacement" delivery is bowled a second batsman could go out too... hence only one delivery has been counted from the innings, yet two batsmen would have been given out.

Why do you use a leather ball in cricket?

Composite (plastic) cricket balls do not perform in the same way as leather balls. Within the game of cricket it is important for both swing bowling and spin bowling that the surface of the ball can wear down during play so that one side can be shined and the other side left rough. This would not be as easily achieved with a plastic ball. Needless to say that a new ball is used at the start of each game, and for longer professional games the fielding captain may ask for a new ball after a set period of overs of use of the ball, e.g. 90 overs in test cricket. At the start of a game therefore the leather ball will be hard, shiny on both sides, and come off the wicket and the bat quicker. As the game progresses the ball will change in shape and become softer and rougher. if the ball goes too far out of shape a replacement ball of a similar surface condition may be requested.
