Unanswered: Help calculating bowling average for cricket
Ive all but finished my cricket stats database but am stuck with the bowling part, when a bowler fails to complete an over it would look something like:
Overs bowled 12.3
This means they bowled 12 overs and 3 balls, when 6 balls have been bowled the over is completed but to calculate total overs bowled in a season i need to add all the overs and balls bowled together. The problem is scenario below
Match 1 - 12.4 overs
Match 2 - 9.5 overs
Total overs 21.9 overs ??????
Should be 22.3
This is not correct as there arent 9 balls in an over only 6, so when the balls equals 6 it adds another over on the over count and starts again at 0?
Can someone help? to those who have a knowledge of cricket this will make alot more sense.
