Linear Scoring System
The linear form of scoring is growing in popularity and, as the preferred scoring system of the ICC and Cricket South Africa, has now been introduced at all levels of cricket in Mpumalanga.
- Linear scoring consist of two sheets - a worksheet and a summary sheet. During the match every ball is recorded on the worksheet and 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 quickly see which batsman faced which delivery and what the total was after every over.
- The worksheet has space for the two batsmen currently batting, a well as for the two bowlers currently bowling. Whenever thee 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 suggest - a summary of the match. All players' stats are calculated from this sheet and no match can be concluded without a completed summary sheet for each innings.
