When the early cricket evidence was identified way back in 1478, cricket has come a long way from then.

Scoring being a main part of the game, has evolved over a period of time. Initially the scoring method witnessed was in plain paper and pencil, when the game began spreading, a proper formatted scoring sheet was adopted. It had blank columns to input details of the team, toss, date, player, result, etc., were printed on it.

The person who does the scoring is referred as the scorer. During a match, the scorer enters the details of every ball bowled along with the outcome of the ball. The on field umpire helps the scorer with how the runs are conceded(normally accounted to the particular batsman who strikes the ball). The scorer adds extra runs if it is a no ball or wide delivery bowled. The communication between umpire and scorer are done through signs. When the umpire provides the signal, the scorer needs to acknowledge it immediately.

In the recent times cricket has experienced latest technologies such as video analysis, simulation for decision, mic in stumps, etc., the scoring is also seen a change, such as scoring on computers, mobile device and tablets(Ex: Chauka Scoring App). These newer tools for scoring makes the scorers’ efforts simpler and less time consuming.
