The first batsman hits a six on the 1st ball. He then tries to take a single on 2nd ball but gets run out while the 2nd batsman safely reaches the striker' s end. The run doesn't get counted but the 2nd batsman now faces the bowler and hits a six on the last ball. Thus both make 100 runs and the 2nd batsman remains unbeaten as well.

solution Nov 4, 2016

First ball, Batsman A on strike (94*), 7 to win - the ball is struck (presumably to somewhere in the outfield) and the batsmen take 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 (as per Law 18.4(a)). 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 (as per Law 19.6). Thus, six runs (3 runs - 1 short run + 4 overthrows) are awarded to Batsman A for his century and according to Law 18.12(a), 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.

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli were batting on 94. Seven runs were required to win by the team and only three balls were left.
At the end, both of them secured a century without being out. How can this be feasible?

With Dhoni and Yuvraj at the crease Cricket Team of India needs to score 9 runs in last 2 balls to win the match. What is the probability that India wins the match?

Assumptions:
- There were no wide balls or no balls bowled in these 2 balls.
- No Wicket has fallen in these 2 balls
- No Overthrows or extra runs were scored in these 2 balls
- In case if run(s)are scored on any of these 2 balls it can only be one of these values: 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6. This also implies that it’s quite possible that zero runs are scored on a particular ball
