Now as per your question imagine if a batsman hits a sixer for all the 100 balls then he scores 600 runs. Now the average of this 600 runs will be his strike rate. Now when it comes to strike rate while playing test cricket then it is referred as the average runs scored by a batsman untill he gets out.
Hope this answers your question.

Batting strike rate measures a batsman's ability to score runs whereas bowling strike rate measures a bowler's ability to take wickets. Batting strike rate is defined as number of runs scored per 100 balls faced. In test cricket it is more important for a batsman to score runs without getting out. Therefore batting average is more important than his strike rate. However in limited over matches strike rate matters. Strike rates of over 150 are becoming common in Twenty20 cricket matches. Average number of balls bowled per wicket taken is bowling strike rate.

For example, if a batsman scored 8 runs for 10 balls then the strike rate for the batsman is 80. Strike rate becomes a crucial factor in determining the batsman capacity. As the cricket is reduced into shorter format, strike rate of the batsman becomes very important to determine his position in the team.

Strike rate is calculated as Strike rate =(Number of runs/Number of balls)*100. It is very important in T20 cricket to have a good strike rate. The other two formats, ODI and Test cricket are dependent on partnerships rather than strike rate.
