What Is A Good Average For A Bowler?
Bowling average is calculated using runs divided by wickets. Test bowling averages are more or less from 20 to 50. A bowler with less than 20 is considered an exceptionally good bowler, and a bowling average between 20 to 25 is a very good bowler. A bowling average between 25 and 30 is a good bowler, and an average between 30 and 35 is a reasonable bowler. A bowling average ranging from 35 to 50 is mostly a batsman but bowls sometimes or occasionally.
Hopefully, there will be more Indian players in the future to break these records of bowling average and create one of their own.
