Options 1 or 4. Directions for questions 29 and 30 - The batting average (BA) of a test batsman is computed from runs scored and innings playedcompleted innings and incomplete innings (not out) in the following manner: r1 = number of runs scored in completed innings n1 = number of completed innings r2 = number of runs scored in incomplete innings n2 = number of incomplete innings. BA = (r1 + r2)/n1 To better assess a batsmans accomplishments, the ICC is considering two other measures MBA1 and MBA2 defined as follows: MBA1 = (r1/n1) + (n1/n2) + max[0, (r2/n2) (r1/n1)] MBA2 = (r1+ r2)/(n1 + n2) 29.
