Period of evaluation
The performances of players and teams are evaluated over a yearly period which stretches from October 1 to September 30.

What parameters go into evaluating a player’s performance?

  • The CCR rating system follows a common points system for players on the basis of their performances in the Test and 50 over ODI formats.
  • A separate system is used to reward players for T20 internationals which is further elaborated upon below

Batting

A 35 in an innings 1 Point
A 50 in an innings 1 Addiontional Point
Every 25 runs thereafter in that
particular innings
1 Point
A century in an innings 3 Additional Points as Bonus
A double century in an innings 6 Additional Points as Bonus
A triple century in an innings 9 Additional Points as Bonus

Bowling

Two wickets in an innings 1 Point
Every subsequent wicket in that particular innings 1 Point
Five wickets in an innings 3 additional points as bonus
Nine wickets in an innings 6 Additional Points as Bonus
Ten wickets in an innings 11 Additional Points as Bonus
Ten wickets in a match 3 Additional Points as Bonus

Fielding

Two catches 1 Point
Every subsequent catch 1 Addiontional Point
Five catches in an innings 3 additional points as bonus
Ten catches in an innings 6 Additional Points as Bonus

Wicket Keeping

3 Dismissals in an innings 1 Point
Every subsequent dismissal in that particular innings 1 Point Each
6 Dismissals in an innings/td> 3 additional points as bonus
10 Dismissals in an innings 6 additional points as bonus
Note
  • A dismissal can be a catch or a stumping
  • Points are not allocated for run outs in the cases of both regular fielders and wicketkeepers

Since Twenty20 cricket puts greater emphasis on batsmen to get going from ball one, bowlers have their work cut out. A batsman’s strike rate and a bowler’s economic rate certainly come under greater scrutiny in this ‘slambang’ format of the game. Therefore, besides notching up points for runs scored and wickets taken, the CCR Twenty20 points system additionally rewards batsmen based on the number of deliveries they take to score runs and bowlers for their economy rate.

Batting

Runs ScoredBatting Points
11 - 20 10
21 - 35 20
36 - 50 50
51 - 75 70
76 - 100 100
101 - 120 110
121 - 135 120
136 & Above 150
Note:
These points get multiplied to the absolute strike rate of the batsman (strike rate/100) to calculate the 'Grand Batting Points'. For example, if a batsman scores 50 runs in 25 balls, he would have earned 50 batting points according to the above scale. His strike rate would be 200 and his absolute strike rate would amount to 2. To calculate his Grand Batting Points, we simply have to multiply ‘batting points’ x ‘absolute strike rate i.e. 50 x 2 which equals 100.

Bowling

Wickets TakenBowling Points
1 10
2 30
3 50
4 70
5 100
6 110
7 120
In addition to the points bowlers earn for the number of wickets they take, their economy rate is also taken into consideration for which points are allocated as per the following:
Economy RateEconomy Points
Less than 4 per over 10
Between 4 & 6 per over 5
Between 6 & 9 per over 2
More than 9 per over 0
The sum of the 'Bowling Points' & the 'Economy Points' equal to a bowler’s 'Grand Bowling Points'.

FIELDING & WICKETKEEPING

Unlike the system used to award fielding points in Tests and 50 over ODIs, the Twenty20 points system doesn’t differ in its allocation of points to regular fielders and wicketkeepers based on the number of catches and stumpings taken. Here’s how points are awarded:

Catches/StumpingsFielding Points
1 10
2 20
3 50
4 70
5 & above 100

We all know the value teams attach to a Test win on the road, let alone to a series win. For this reason, the CCR Team Rating system ensures teams merit extra points for away Test match wins as compared to a win in their own backyard. For 50 over ODIs and Twenty20 internationals, a common system is used to rate team performances.

TEST

Outright win 6 points for home win
9 points for away win
Draw/Tie 3 points each
Defeat no points
Series Win 2 bonus points

50 OVER ODI & T20 INTERNATIONAL

Win 2 points
Tie 1 point
Abandoned match no points
In 50 over ODIs and Twenty20 internationals, bonus points for series or tournament wins will be based on the number of countries participating in the event. So if it’s a bilateral series, the series winner gets 2 bonus points, if it’s a triangular series, the winning team gets 3 points and so on. For the forthcoming ICC World Cup in 2015, since 14 teams will be involved, the world champions would earn 14 bonus points.

Virat Kohli adds his name to the list of cricketers to have won the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award on more than one occasion, also emerging as the youngest player to have accomplished the feat. The dynamic Indian batsman has been of the international cricket’s prolific run scorers in recent years and 2013-14 proved to be no different. In ODIs alone, he scored 1000 plus runs for the third consecutive year, 1580 runs from 36 matches at an average of 60.76 to be more precise, which comprised 6 tons, including the fastest century by an Indian batsmen.

History

Since it first took flight in 1996 in Mumbai, some of the biggest names to have played the game in the last couple of decades have seen their name engraved on the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award.

  • 1International Cricketer of the Year Brian Lara (West Indies)

On a historic evening in cricket crazy Mumbai, West Indian legend Brian Lara became the first player to win the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award for his outstanding performances in the 1995-96 season. Lara’s haul of 74 points saw him finish a clear 13 points ahead of Australian rival, Mark Waugh, the other elegant batsman of that generation. Waugh’s Aussie teammate, wicketkeeper Ian Healy, finished third with 56 points.

  • 1International Cricketer of the Year Venkatesh Prasad (India)
  • 2International Team of the Year Pakistan

The bowlers came to the fore the following year, when it seemed as if cricketers from India and Pakistan drew inspiration from the golden jubilee celebrations of their independence. Venkatesh Prasad topped the Ratings for 1996-97 with 92 points, followed closely by Wasim Akram (87 pts), Anil Kumble (85 pts) and Saqlain Mushtaq (81 pts). Sachin Tendulkar (79 pts) was the lone specialist batsman in the top five. The second edition witnessed the introduction of the CCR International Team of the Year award which went to Pakistan who topped the Team Rating with 92 points.

  • 1International Cricketer of the YearSanath Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka)
  • 2International Team of the Year Australia

The batsmen and bowlers shared the limelight in 1997-98. Sri Lanka’s dashing opener Sanath Jayasuriya (122 pts) edged Indian maestro Tendulkar (114 pts) for the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award. The two were followed by Muttiah Muralitharan (107), Mohammad Azharuddin (99 pts) and Shane Warne (91 pts). Australia topped the Team Rating with 94 points with South Africa and Pakistan finishing second and third respectively.

  • 1International Cricketer of the YearJacques Kallis (South Africa)
  • 2International Team of the Year South Africa

It was a year dominated by the South African cricket team who clinched top honours in both the Team and Player Rating. The Proteas earned 97 points to bag the CCR International Team of the Year award while star all-rounder Jacques Kallis topped the Player Rating with 113 points. Kallis was on song with both bat and ball, scoring 1737 runs at an average of 46.94 while taking 58 wickets at a measly 24.91 apiece. Glenn McGrath (98 pts), Shaun Pollock and Anil Kumble (both 87 pts) came second, third and fourth respectively. Like 1996-97, Sachin Tendulkar 81 (pts) was again the only specialist batsman to figure in the top five.

  • 1International Cricketer of the YearSourav Ganguly (India)
  • 2International Team of the Year Australia

The top five featured two specialist batsmen, two specialist all-rounders and a wicketkeeper. Sourav Ganguly reigned supreme with a tally of 98 points thus becoming the second Indian after Venkatesh Prasad to be named CEAT International Cricketer of the Year. The 'Prince of Kolkata' was in sparkling touch with the bat, especially in the shorter format where he plundered 1902 runs at an average of 47.55 including six centuries. Sachin Tendulkar and New Zealand’s Chris Cairns shared the runner-up spot with 95 points. Adam Gilchrist and Jacques Kallis came fourth and fifth respectively. In the Team Rating, Australia, who won 10 consecutive Test matches and lifted their second World Cup trophy during the CEAT year, were in a league of their own. They bagged a record haul of 154 points with a whopping 53 points separating them from their nearest competitor South Africa.

Murali walked away with the crown with 111 points, of which a staggering 110 points were for bowling alone. Atapattu and Jayasuriya came second and third with 95 and 93 points respectively, although the former’s disappointment was compensated for by being named International Batsman of the Year. South Africa topped the Team Rating for the second time with a tally of 98 points followed by the Aussies. This was the fourth year in succession that South Africa and Australia grabbed the top two spots in the CCR International Team of the Year.

His individual performances earned him his first CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award after amassing a tally of 105 points. Ponting led from the front when it mattered most, scoring a sublime ton in the World Cup final against India which Australia comfortably won. That triumph would prove crucial in helping the Aussies seal their fourth CCR International Team of the Year prize. Ponting also bagged the Batsman of the Year award while India’s Harbhajan Singh, who took 39 Test wickets and 56 ODI wickets, was named the CEAT International Bowler of the Year.

The decline of the West Indies seemed to have no effect on Brian Lara who clinched his second CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award with a tally of 149 points. The dazzling Trinidadian hit seven centuries during the CEAT Year, the most memorable of which included a world record breaking Test score of 400 not out against England. In the team category, Australia were at the peak of their powers and retained their hold on the Team of the Year crown as a total of 33 wins (24 ODIs, 9 Tests) gave them an aggregate of 134 points.

  • 1International Cricketer of the YearJacques Kallis (South Africa)
  • 2International Team of the Year Australia

South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis followed in the footsteps of Muttiah Muralitharan and Brian Lara to top the CEAT Player Rating for the second time. Kallis piled on 2000 plus runs which included seven centuries during the CEAT year while also earning a good number of points for using his medium pace swing bowling to good effect. Australia’s dominance of the CEAT Team Rating continued for a fourth straight season even though they would fall a couple of points short of their previous year’s haul to finish on 132 points.

Ricky Ponting became the fourth member of a distinguished group of players to have won the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award twice, the other three being Muttiah Muralitharan, Brian Lara and Jacques Kallis. Ponting hit 12 tons in a scintillating year, and just like when he won his first Cricketer of the Year award in 2002-03, the Australian skipper inspired his team to glory too, as Australia racked up 161 points to be named Team of the Year for the seventh time. In a further indication of Aussie dominance, Mike Hussey won the CEAT International Debutant of the Year award.

Mumbai all-rounder Ramesh Powar won the inaugural CEAT Domestic Cricketer of the Year award.

Muttiah Muralitharan makes history yet again as he is named the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award for an unprecedented third time. The iconic spinner was also the proud claimant of the International Bowler of the Year award. Teammate Mahela Jayawardene capped off a splendid year for Sri Lankan cricket by winning the International Batsman of the Year award. In a year which witnessed their third consecutive World Cup triumph, the all conquering Aussies win the Team of the Year award for the eight time and a sixth successive season.

CEAT also marked the diamond jubilee of Test cricket between India and Australia which began in 1947-48 by presenting a CCR Lifetime Achievement award to a player from each country, which went to the captains of the two teams at the time, Anil Kumble and Ricky Ponting.

In another significant development, CEAT also introduced the CEAT Under-19 and T20 ratings with a vision to catch and promote young talent from across the country, especially in small towns.

  • 1International Cricketer of the Year Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka)
  • 2International Team of the Year India

Having been named ‘International Batsman of the Year’ the previous season, the Sri Lankan captain went one better over the course of the 2007-08 season, succeeding his compatriot Muttiah Muralitharan as the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year. Jayawardene posted over 2000 runs across all three formats and crossed the three-figure mark in seven innings, which included two back to back mammoth knocks in Sri Lanka’s home Test series win over England.

In the Team Rating, India end Australia’s six-year reign as ‘International Team of the Year after a largely successful season despite a change in leadership. While Rahul Dravid leads India to their first Test series win in England since 1986, a young Indian side brilliantly marshalled by MS Dhoni create history by winning the inaugural World Twenty20 Championship in South Africa.

His runs helped India clinch their first Test series win in New Zealand after more than three decades. Gambhir’s India and Delhi opening partner Virender Sehwag won the ODI Batsman of the Year award. Australia also featured prominently as they were yet again declared Team of the Year while Aussie left-arm paceman Mitchell Johnson scooped the Test Bowler of the Year award. Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis bagged top bowling honours in the ODI format.

It was the year when Australia’s Shane Watson seemed to hold the ‘Midas touch’ be it with bat, ball or in the field. The all-rounder scored 2500-odd runs while taking 63 wickets and 33 catches to top the Player Rating. Watson’s stellar year coincided with an equally successful year for his team as Australia laid their hands on the Team of the Year award for a remarkable eighth time in nine seasons.

Bearing in mind the 2011 World Cup which was round the corner, this edition wore a special theme as CEAT Cricket Rating presented retro awards for the first time, honoring players who produced eye catching displays in every World Cup since 1975. India dominated the list with three winners in Kapil Dev (1983), Rahul Dravid (1999) and Sourav Ganguly (2003) followed by Australia who had Geoff Marsh (1987) and Matthew Hayden (2007) starring among the nine winners.

The season was a richly rewarding one for England’s Jonathan Trott whose efforts with the bat through the year saw him named both the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year as well as the Batsman of the Year. Trott’s sparkling form, especially on the tour of Australia was crucial in helping England win their first Ashes series Down Under in 24 years. Unsurprisingly, Trott’s teammate James Anderson walked away with the International Bowler of the Year award. India’s Suresh Raina won the accolade of International T20 player of the Year. India’s Gautam Gambhir scooped the Match-winning Innings of the Year award for his brilliant 97 in the World Cup final against Sri Lanka which paved the way for India’s second world crown.

Kohli finished as India’s top run scorer in both Tests and ODIs during the course of the CEAT Year scoring a career best ODI knock of 183 against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. The Team of the Year award returned and Pakistan were the proud beneficiaries.

CEAT also held a special India-Pakistan award segment as a way of commemorating the occasion of the Pakistan team returning to India after several years. This saw Inzamam-ul-Haq picking up the award for Best ODI Batsman with his former teammate Wasim Akram winning the Best ODI bowler prize.

Virat Kohli adds his name to the list of cricketers to have won the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year award on more than one occasion, also emerging as the youngest player to have accomplished the feat.

In ODIs alone, he scored 1000 plus runs for the third consecutive year, 1580 runs from 36 matches at an average of 60.76 to be more precise, which comprised 6 tons, including the fastest century by an Indian batsmen.

Australia’s Glenn Maxwell emerged the winner of the CEAT Popular Choice award.

CEAT CRICKET RATING BAT & CHAT SHOW

About CEAT Bat & Chat

CEAT’s association with cricket stretches way back to 1995 when the CEAT International Cricket Rating and Awards were born. Bat & Chat was created with an aim to continue our tradition of being pioneers in creating long lasting cricket properties which resonate deeply with the Indian fan.

The show is a series of discussions and debates on burning topics in cricket involving the legends of the game. One of the hallmarks of Bat & Chat is that it’s a show that travels across the country with the purpose of enhancing fan engagement through exclusive content that will be telecast by media across various corners of India.

The Debut Show

The Deccan Gymkhana in Pune played host to the inaugural edition of CEAT Bat & Chat on December 10, 2012 as two of India’s 1983 World Cup winning squad members, Mohinder Amarnath and Dilip Vengsarkar joined renowned sports journalist Ayaz Memon with the trio debating on the following hot topics:

  • How much of a say should captains have in team selection matters?
  • How crucial a factor is ‘home advantage’ in modern day cricket?
  • Is it right for the home team captain to demand a pitch tailored to suit his team?

With Amarnath and Vengsarkar living up to their reputation for not holding back their views, the show was a roaring success, especially with the media who lapped up some juicy bytes. Amarnath’s comments, particularly on Dhoni’s captaincy post the World Cup, made front page headlines in the following day’s papers. On the subject of doctoring pitches, the former teammates agreed that team preparation was more important, citing India’s defeats to England in the series taking place at the time as a classic example. You can catch the details of their gripping discussion in the video below.

CEAT MASTER CLASS

Introduction

Sunil Gavaskar is considered by many to be one of the greatest opening batsmen to have played the game. Admired by many purists for his impeccable technique, Gavaskar never looked back since announcing his arrival on the international stage with great aplomb during India’s historic 1970-71 tour of the West Indies. Indeed, the original ‘Little Master’ would go on to become the first man to scale the 10000 run mark in Test cricket.

Gavaskar has shared a close bond with the game even post his playing career, especially as a well respected television commentator and media columnist.

As an extension to the CEAT Cricket Rating property, Gavaskar regularly appears on NDTV 24/7 as the news channel’s cricket expert and also pens a weekly column in the Sunday edition of The Times of India dedicated to the CEAT International Cricketer of the Week.

MATCH REPORT

CEAT SECURA PAVILION

All of us cricket fans are no strangers to the roller coaster of emotions one goes through when witnessing a match that goes right down to the wire. In India, ‘Paisa Vasool’ (money’s worth) is the term a lot of us normally use to describe a nail-biting encounter. Well, it’s only fair then that the main protagonists of top quality cricket matches, the players, are appreciated for the entertainment value they bring to the sport that has fanatics like us glued to our seats.

For years, this wasn’t the case till 1995 when PMG and CEAT realized the need of establishing a system which would recognise and reward the exceptional performances of players on the international stage. Fittingly, three legends of the game, Clive Lloyd, Ian Chappell and Sunil Gavaskar put their heads together to help the idea come to fruition. Thus, the CEAT International Cricket Rating System was born.



To its credit, the CEAT Cricket Rating (CCR) was the first of its kind in the cricketing world, and ever since dashing West Indian Brian Lara was named the first ever CEAT International Cricketer of the Year back in 1996, CCR has kept pace with the way the sport has developed. When the game’s ‘slambang’ version which we better know as Twenty20 cricket began to boom in 2005, it was understood that a new system needed to be devised which took into account parameters like a batsman’s strike rate and a bowler’s economy rate. The CEAT T20 Rating thus made its introduction in October 2007.

Widely considered as one of the greatest opening batsman of all-time, Sunil Gavaskar was part of the original three member panel, also comprising fellow legends, Ian Chappell and Clive Lloyd, that came together and helped devise the CEAT International Cricket Rating system in 1995.

Gavaskar, who at one time was the world record holder for the highest number of Test centuries, is now the chief adjudicator of the CEAT Cricket Rating Awards.

As an extension to the CEAT Cricket Rating property, Gavaskar regularly appears on NDTV 24/7 as the news channel’s cricket expert and also pens a weekly column in the Sunday edition of The Times of India dedicated to the CEAT International Cricketer of the Week.
