Are you talking about point (a)?
But condition is getting fulfilled if batsman is taking 3 runs.
Or is it (c) or (d)?





Yes its point (a). And the answer is based on the assumption that batsman takes only 3 runs. But its perfectly legal for the batsman to take 5 runs too or matter of fact even 7.
Thats is why answer is wrong
cheers,
Super

Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it





Oh yes, you are correct.





What can be the right answer (with all rules being followed)?





Logically 1653 is right answer but mathematically you can calculate by exchanging 3runs with 5 or 7 or 9 and so on.......





He did say no over throws. Without an overthrow you cannot run a 5. So a 3 is the maximum he can score off a ball without hitting a boundary.

Why not consider a fielder constantly slipping on the ground so as to make 5 or 7 or even 9 runs possible while running between the wicket? Also consider all fielders do the same for last ball of each of the 50 overs?
If we have already settled that it's possible for a single player to hit 5 sixes and then get a 3 for each over, why not add this bit as well?
Your time will come, if you let it be right.





At some point you need to set a boundary, otherwise the question is meaningless. People have hit 6s and people have run 3s without overthrows. No one has run a 5 without a misfield or an overthrow in Test cricket. Also this sort of question requires a certain mindset  so someone who tries to point out that the question is flawed, when the question was not meant to be flawless, is revealing his character  which may be what the person asking the question was after. Can this candidate solve a problem or is he going to be a smart ass by responding with unprovoked and unneeded criticism?





I wouldn't say the answer is wrong. It's assumed that OP meant a regular cricket ground. So 33 per over for 50 overs is the mathematical max.

You missed that last over can go for 36 instead of 33.
