It's just a stat.
Yes that’s the definition for the stats. If player loses the ball that’s a dribble but obviously not a successful dribble.
Obviously that can't be the definition. If he bangs one into the top corner having beaten three men are you saying that doesn't count as a successful dribble? Or if he beats a man down the wing and then wins a corner... that's not a successful dribble? Or if a defender carries the ball out of his area, beating an opponent, before playing a ball down-field that gets intercepted... that's not a successful dribble either?
Suggest you define it for us, then!
Think I kind of already have. Beat a man with the ball at your feet - that's a successful dribble.
