Highest Strike Rate
Batting strike rate is defined for a batsman as the average number of runs scored per 100 balls faced. The higher the strike rate, the more effective a batsman is at scoring quickly.
In Test cricket, a batsman’s strike rate is of secondary relevance to his ability to score runs without getting out. This means a Test batsman’s most important statistic is generally considered to be his batting average, rather than his strike rate.
In limited overs cricket, strike rates are of considerably more importance. Since each team only faces a limited number of balls in an innings, the faster a batsman scores, the more runs his team will be able to accumulate. Strike rates of over 150 are becoming common in Twenty20 cricket. Strike rate (s/r) is probably considered by most as the key factor in a batsman in one day cricket. Accordingly the batsmen with the higher strike rate, especially in Twenty20 matches, are more valued than those with a lesser strike rate. (wikipedia)
