\[\text{Average run=}\dfrac{\text{Total Run}}{\text{Number of members in team}}\]

We have been given that, in a cricket match, 11 members of team A scored 330 runs and 6 members of team B scored 195 runs and we have to find which team performed better.

Now, we will calculate the average run made by each member of the team and on comparing the average run made by each member, we will decide which team performed better.

We will use the formula of average run as follows,

\[\text{Average run=}\dfrac{\text{Total Run by a team}}{\text{Number of members in team}}\]

For team A, we have 11 members and 330 runs.

\[\Rightarrow \text{Average run=}\dfrac{330}{11}=30\text{ runs}\]

For team B, we have 6 members and 195 runs.

\[\Rightarrow \text{Average run=}\dfrac{195}{6}=32.5\text{ runs}\]

Now, on comparing the average runs of team A and team B, we can see that, average run of team B is higher than team A. Thus, team B performs better than team A.
