Understanding my sprint report

Forgive my "newbie" question, but I am having a tough time figuring out my sprint report. We use original time estimate as our statistic and track time spent (why the green line is there). 



Here is how I am reading this: At the beginning of the sprint, we estimated around 325 hours of work. We quickly added tasks to the sprint, taking us up to 600-ish hours. By around July 7, we hit those 600 hours and kept going! BUT, we ended up carrying over close to 400 hours of time in our remaining values?


This seems like we are super inefficient, which is not an accurate picture, so now my question is if we are utilizing our sprint ticket fields properly. We use original time estimate and then we track time to the tickets via third party plug in, and I do get a "time spent" and "remaining time" estimate in our tickets. Capture2.PNG


Can anyone help me with my above description (if I were explaining this chart to an executive) and if I am correct with all my fields? Many, many thanks!

One thing to be sure to do is set the remaining time to 0 for all issues that are marked done. This includes if you have statuses like cancelled, etc. Moreover, ensure the remaining time is always as accurate as possible. Finally, as you pointed out try to address future instances of sprint churn. 😉 basically what I would take away at first glance is that you initially effectively estimated your teams velocity but then allowed for doubling of the capacity, I.e. your red line burned down to the original estimate.
