### Cricket Puzzle

Cricket Puzzle - 21 September

Two batsman each on 94 runs. Seven runs needed to win in last 3 balls. Both make 100*. How?

1. 6 on first ball one hundred complete..next ball catch out but they change thier strik while the ball was in the air then another six and over...done

1. but they made 100* that means both should be not out.

2. Ball 1: 4 runs
Ball 2: 3 runs (with 1 short run). 1st batsman completed 100.Also side changed.
Ball 3: 6 runs 2nd batsman got 100 runs

3. first ball six then five balls dot then other batsman scores a
six

4. @niranjan 3balls left then how can 5 dots. poor guy

5. pretty easy riddle here fellas. 6, bye, 6. Simple.byes only count on the team score, not the batsman.

6. @anonymous. only 7 runs to win . so match will end as soon as bye is taken. how come you scored 13...poor guy...

7. First batsmen hit six....and completes his century.....and he get retired hurt......while the another batsmen comes...an he get run out on its firts ball and give strike tu another batsmen who is in 94....and last ball....1 ball 1 run needed...he will hit six....and the match wins

2. Solution
Ball 1: 4 runs
Ball 2: 2 runs (with 1 short run). 1st batsman completed 100. Also side got changed
Ball 3: 6 runs 2nd batsman got 100.

3. 94+4+2(-1 of short) =99
and wrong

4. Veera

1).94+4+3(-1 of short) =100
2).94+6 = 100

5. Ball 1: 6 Runs ( complete100 1st batsman)
then side changed
Ball 2: Wide
Ball 3: 6 Runs ( complete 100 2nd batsman).

1. why side changed without completion of over?

2. However side changed in first ball means after the wide match finished with 7 run target. Then how can u go for last ball?

3. 1: 4 RUNS
2: 3 RUNS (1 SHORT)
3: SIX

4. Batsman have to return to original crease if run is declared short.

6. 1st batsman hits the ball & taken 1 run ....but ball hit the helmet of the wicketkeeper which was behind the keeper,5 runs given to the batsman more then on next ball 2nd batsman hits for 6

7. First ball, Batsman A on strike (94), 7 to win - batsmen hits the ball nd takes three runs. However, on one of the runs, one of the batsmen accidentally fails to make his ground, so the umpire calls a short run and that run is disallowed. While the ball is still in play the fielder throws it to the wicket-keeper but overthrows it, and the ball goes to the boundary and so an additional four runs are awarded. Thus, six runs (3 runs - 1 short run + 4 overthrows) are awarded to Batsman A for his century, Batsman B would now be on strike.

Second ball, Batsman B on strike (94), 1 to win -- the ball is struck over the boundary for six. Batsman B scores his century and his team wins the match.

This scenario also solves the raised issue.. two centuries and the match winning..

1. If the batsman runs 3 and it was a short run, only one run is awarded

8. 1st Ball Batsman A on Strike: 4 Runs
2nd Ball Batsman A takes 3 runs but there is 1 short run he takes so on 2nd ball Batsman A gets 2 runs and its century gets completed also strike get change
Now on 3rd Ball 1 run to win and Batsman B on strike: 6 Runs
Both are completed their century with Notout

9. ball 1: 5
ball 2: 1
ball 3: 6

10. ball1; 6 ( batsman 1)( but got retired hurt because of muscle pull and next batsman got on crease)
ball 2; w ( new batsman gets out in meanwhile they cross over)
ball 3; 6(batsman 2)

12. It can be done quite simply:
(1) Ball bowled wide: 1 to batsman A
(2) Hopeless fielding: 5 to batsman A
(3) Batsman B now at crease: its a 6!
Or if the wide does not count as one of the 3 balls then replace (2) with a 2 followed by a 3 by batsman A.

1. Will wide be added with batsman score?

2. wide ball batsman k score mai add nhi hoat bhaya.....

13. good question

14. first batsmen a hits the ball and takes 1 run and accidently the ball hits the wk helmet....so penelty 5+1=6 runs added to the batsmen a.the next ball is faced by batsmen b and he hits a six so both100*......simple as that....

15. 1: 4 RUNS
2: 3 RUNS (1 SHORT)
3: SIX

16. Yup !! Hemant verma

17. wrong score board

18. 1st batsman push the ball for a single and the filder throw the ball but he missed the direct hit and ball gone for four in over throw so 1st batsman completes his century now just 2 need on two balls and second batsman at the strike he hits the ball all over for six runs he also complete his century.....!

20. How about this one, same puzzle but last two balls remaining!

21. chintan choksi
another posiblity is that
balls
1: batsman A 6runs
2 :0 trying to make 1run but runout batsman A bowler side : strike goes to batsman B
3 :6 runs by batsman B.

1. 100* means 100Not out.

22. Ball 1: Three runs taken. Fielder OVER THROWS for another three runs!
Ball 2: next batsmen hits 6!

100* not out both and match finished in two balls!

1. But on over throw , when they complete 6 runs again the first batsmen will be on batting end only.

23. You guys are all morons....
Ball 1 (final ball of the over)... batsmen 1 hits 6 runs
Ball 2( 1st ball of next over) batsmen 2 hits 6 runs.
game won with 1 ball left...

24. I thank Ball 1: 4 runs....
