#LRDIoftheDay #25 The annoying kind

There are 11 players on each side in ODI cricket, and one team bats while the others bowl. Then the teams swap after 50 overs. With an eye on the 2019 World Cup, the coach of the Indian ODI cricket team, Ravi Shastri is a master strategist who thinks faster than a tracer bullet when it comes to shuffling the batting order. In a recent match against Australia, India scored 340 runs for the loss of 9 wickets and the last unbeaten pair of batsmen together scored 40 runs before they ran out of overs.

1. In the batting order the 4th and the 5th men each scored exactly a 100 runs, while the first two batsmen scored 50 between themselves.
2. The ratio of the runs scored by the first three batsman, Shikhar, Rohit and Hardik (though not necessarily) 1, 2 and 3 in the batting order) was 6 : 4 : 3.
3. Two consecutive batsman scored 0, and the first 9 batsmen in the batting order scored either 0 or scores that were multiples of 5.
4. Dhoni was the 8th batsmen in the batting order, and the next person after Dhoni scored a 5.
5. The runs scored by Virat if added to the extras (bonus runs not scored by any batsmen but given by the bowling team to the batting team) equaled Shikhar’s score.
6. Rohit scored one-fifth of Manish’s score and equal to Virat’s score.
7. Kedar scored 5 times what Virat scored.
8. Bhuvaneshwar and Jasprit scored 18 and 22 respectively, while together they scored 25 more than Dhoni and Hardik together.
9. Yuzvendra was India’s most successful bowler of the match, and Kuldeep took 2 wickets less than Yuzvendra.
