The Lure of Numbers - How to Fill in a Scorebook

Along with umpiring, scoring is the next best thing to being involved in the action. Honest!

If your team are piling on the runs as they chase a monster total, it's of no help if the scorebook isn't accurate. How would you feel if that hard-earned 7 not out went down as 3 and four byes? Pick up a book (preferably the opposition's) and learn from the masters.

After every ball there is a fairly simple set of processes that require to be done. If you follow them then there should be no problems in having an immaculate scorebook

On Completion of a Delivery

  • If no run was scored
  • Mark a dot in the bowler's box
  • If one or more runs were scored by the batsman
  • Mark the number of runs scored off that ball against the batsman.
  • Increase the running total section by the number of runs scored.
  • Mark the number of runs scored off that ball in the bowler's box.
  • If one or more byes or leg byes were scored (signalled by the umpire)
  • Mark the number of byes/leg byes scored in the byes/leg byes section of the extras box.
  • Increase the running total section by the number of runs taken.
  • Mark a dot in the bowler's box.
  • If a wide was bowled (signalled by the umpire) and the batsmen did not run
  • Mark a 1 in the wides section of the extras box.
  • Increase the running total section by 1.
  • Mark a '+' in the bowler's box, leaving room for the extra delivery.
  • If a wide was bowled (signalled by the umpire) and the batsmen did run byes or the ball went to the boundary
  • Mark the number of wides (equal to 1 plus the number of runs taken) in the wides section of the extras box.
  • Increase the running total section by 1 plus the number of runs taken.
  • Mark a '+' in the bowler's box with a dot in each interstice of the cross for each run taken, leaving room for the extra delivery.
  • If a no-ball was bowled (signalled by the umpire) and the batsman did not play a scoring shot
  • Mark a 1 in the no-ball section of the extras box.
  • Increase the running total section by 1.
  • Mark a circle with a dot inside in the bowler's box, leaving room for the extra delivery.
  • If a no-ball was bowled (signalled by the umpire) and the batsman did play a scoring shot
  • Mark the number of runs scored against the batsman.
  • Increase the running total section by the sum of 1 plus number of runs scored.
  • Mark a circle with the sum of 1 plus number of runs scored in the bowler's box, leaving room for the extra delivery.
  • If a no-ball was bowled (signalled by the umpire) and the batsman did run byes or leg-byes
  • Mark the number of no-balls (equal to 1 plus the number of runs taken) in the no-balls section of the extras box.
  • Increase the running total section by the sum of 1 plus the number of runs taken.
  • Mark a circle with the sum of 1 plus number of runs scored in the bowler's box, leaving room for the extra delivery.
  • If a wicket was taken then
  • If the dismissal occurred off a no-ball or wide ball and/or runs were completed before a run out, then first treat the penalties and completed runs as indicated above.
  • Complete the how out (including catcher), bowler information and the batsman's total in the batsman's row.
  • Mark a 'w' in the appropriate bowler's box unless it was a run-out in which case mark the number of completed runs if they were off the bat, or a dot if they were extras or no runs were scored.
  • Mark the total and the number of the dismissed batsman in the fall of wicket section.

 

On Completion of an Over

  • In the Overs Section
  • Mark the total and bowler number in the appropriate box.
  • In the Bowler's box
  • Accumulate the number of runs conceded in the over (wides and no-balls are counted) and add to the bowler's running total in the bottom of each box.
  • Increment the number of wickets taken in the same place.
  • If a maiden over (ie no runs scored off the bowler), then join the dots to form a large 'M'. Replace with a large 'W' if any wickets were taken in the maiden over.

 

On Completion of an Innings

  • Add it all up
  • The total of batsmens' runs plus extras box should equal the total in the running total section.
  • The total of the number of runs conceded by all the bowlers plus the number of byes and leg byes from the extras box should also equal the above total.
  • The total of the number of wickets taken by the bowler plus the number of run outs should equal the number of wickets in the batting section and the number of wickets in the fall of wicket section

NB The 'Add it all up' tests can be applied at ANY point during the innings as a method of checking the accuracy of the scorebook
