The batting strike rate is the number of runs scored per 100 balls faced. When strike rate of a batsman is higher, then more effective a batsman is at scoring run quickly in any limited over format of a match.

In fixed over matches strike rate becomes very important because of the more your strike rate, the more effective a batsman in scoring maximum runs. Each team players only faces a limited number of balls in an innings. The faster a batsman scores in the minimum ball, the more runs his team will get to score in limited over match. The strike rate is one of the key factors of a batsman in one-day international cricket. The batsmen with the higher strike rate, especially in T20 matches, are more valued than those with fewer strike rates. Andre Russell is Right on Top of the table with Career Strike Rate of 130.81
