How many runs a single player can score in One day match (50 overs/ 300 balls)... No 'no balls', no wides, no extras, no over throws.So how much runs he can score max?

posted Mar 29, 2014

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.

31*50 = 1550 + 5 =1555
