Forcefully take charge: it should increase the score (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

overthrow

I believe this is a double definition.

'forcefully take charge' is the first definition.
(as in overthrowing a government)

'it should increase the score' is the second definition.
(type of run in cricket)

(Other definitions for overthrow that I've seen before include "Fall", "Worst", "Remove forcibly from power", "Dethrone or oust", "Bring down (government)".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
