## 5 Solutions

In last over player can score 36 runs and in all previous overs player need to have 5 sixes and 3 runs in the last ball to retain the strike so in total -

``````49*33 + 36 = 1653
``````

Why player can run 5 run also right?
In the question it was clear no extras, no over throws :)
Is 'misfield' considered 'overthrow' technically?

He does this for all the 50 overs, that makes 33*50 = 1650 runs.
Just that on the last ball of the match, he doesn't need to take 3 runs and can hit that for a six too. That adds 3 more runs to the tally and makes his total as 1650+3 = 1653 runs.

FIRST 49 0ver he can score about 49*33 (5*6=30 and 1*3=3 total 33)
last over 6*6=36
then
33*49 = 1617
6*6 = 36
(1617+36)=1653

As per Jayanth Raj Gowda it comes to 49*35+36=1751. I don't know what is wrong in it.
