Validation of Scorecard Entry in the Chauka Cricket Scorer
This feature is geared toward improving the scoring for those who enter the match records manually from a scoresheet when the match has ended. This makes the scorer’s work easier by showing error messages so that the scorer can visit the specific part and make the correction.
Following are the cases where validation occurs:
■ Total runs doesn’t match with the runs scored by all the batsmen added with extras
When you enter scores of all the batsmen in a team and enter the total score which do not match each other then the error message will be displayed, then the scorer can easily correct it.
■ Total runs doesn’t match with the runs conceded by all the bowlers in the bowling team added with bye and leg bye
If you look at the above image(Bowling Details For Team SCSC), the total score conceded is 40 and the bye is 1 which makes the total 41. But the total score entered is 39 and the batsmen runs + extras is 39, so the error message will be shown as represented by the image below.
■ Total wickets doesn’t match with the number of wickets from the batting records
As you can see in the above image, the wickets in the batting details section is only 2, but at the total it’s displaying as 3 which leads into error message display as shown in the same image.
■ Total overs doesn’t match with the number of overs bowled by the bowling team
As you can see in the above image, total overs bowled is 4.5, but the total is displaying as 5.5 overs. In that case an error message as shown below will appear to notify the scorer.
■ While modifying the total
○ Runs which do not match the batsmen runs + extras
○ Runs which do not match the runs conceded + bye + leg bye
○ Wickets which do not match the wickets in the batting table
○ Overs which do not match the overs entered in the bowling records
After the match has been recorded, if the scorer tries to modify the above listed totals, then an error message will be displayed as shown below.
When the innings appears to have ended abnormally, a warning message as shown in the above screenshot will be shown.
