In SAP Lumira we can create a pair of pie charts showing the percentage of runs each team’s bowlers have conceded with a depth of the sum of the balls, wides, and no balls, they have delivered to visualizes each individual bowler’s efficiency during the season. The large slice in dark orange belongs to Rajasthan’s Pravin Tambe, who in the course of bowling the maximum number of overs allowed per match for the Royals, has earned a team leading economy of 6.21 and has taken a team best 12 wickets. Bangalore’s attack is anchored by Yuzvendra Chahal who has earned the third best economy rate in the league, 5.93, from the 31 overs he has bowled this season.

Tambe had a tremendous match against Bangalore earlier this season, when he only conceded 20 runs in four overs while scalping four Royal Challengers. With SAP Crystal Reports we can show the results of each ball Tambe delivered broken down by line and length. Tambe bowled nine of his 10 dots with an off stump line and took each of his wickets from a delivery with a different combination of length and line.
