LINEAR CRICKET SCORING
Linear Scoring System The linear form of cricket scoring is growing in popularity and, as the preferred scoring system of Cricket South Africa, has now been introduced at all levels of cricket in KwaZulu-Natal. Linear scoring consists of two sheets – a worksheet and a summary sheet. During the match every ball is recorded on the worksheet and certain information is then transferred from the worksheet onto the summary sheet. The worksheet shows each over on consecutive lines and every ball, run and wicket is scored on this sheet. You can see which batsman faced which delivery and what the total was after every over. The worksheet has space for the two batsmen currently batting, as well as for the two bowlers currently bowling. Whenever there is a bowling change, the bowler is replaced on the worksheet by the next bowler and the same applies to batsmen when they go out. The summary sheet is exactly what its name suggests, i.e. a summary of the match. All the players’ stats are calculated from this sheet and no match can be concluded without a completed summary sheet for each innings.
