To cut to the chase, the answer is yes
To cut to the chase, the answer is yes. As figure 1 shows, strike rate (runs scored per 100 balls) for Indian batsmen batting in the 90s is a full 10 points lower than it is when they are in their 80s. The figure also shows that Indian batsmen accelerate after reaching their centuries; their strike rate jumps by close to 30 points after the landmark is reached.
