Question: In a one day international cricket match, considering no extras(no wides, no ‘no’ balls, etc.) and no overthrows. What is the maximum number of runs that a batsman can score in an ideal case ? Note:”Here we assume ideal and little practical scenario. We assume that batsman can not run for more than 3 runs in a ball, as otherwise there is no limit, he can run infinite runs(theoretically) in a ball, as far as opposite team does not catch the ball.”





Answer: 49*(6*5+3)+(6*6)= 1653 From Over 1 to 49: 1st ball:- 6 runs(hit six) 2nd ball:- 6 runs(hit six) 3rd ball:- 6 runs(hit six) 4th ball:- 6 runs(hit six) 5th ball:- 6 runs(hit six) 6th ball:- 3 runs(took 3 runs between the wickets and take back the strike) = >49*(6*5+3) 50th Over: Hit six sixes in a row. = >6*6
