CASELET 3 Questions 11- 17: Answer the questions based on the information given below There is a triangular cricket tournament conducted between three management institutes-  CIMA-A, CIMA-B and CIMA-C. All matches are of 50 overs duration and each over comprises of 6 deliveries. All institutes play against each other twice in the first round. At the end of the first round, the top two teams qualify for the finals. The top two teams are decided by number of points gained by them. 2 points are awarded for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss. If two or more teams are tied with the same number of points, the run rate difference(RRD) is taken into account. Run Rate(RR) is calculated as the runs scored per over by the team while batting. While batting, if a team loses all its 10 wickets, then all 50 overs are considered while calculating RR or else, the number of overs the team has batted for is taken into account. The RRD is the difference between the RR at which the team scores runs while batting and the RR at which the opponent team scores runs while they are batting in that particular match. The net RRD is then calculated after adding the values of RRD of each match. The table below gives details of all the first round matches. The two graphs below the table show the number of runs scored by each team in a particular match data-interpretation4 data-interpretation5 Graph I                                                                                                                     Graph II (X axis→ match number          Y axis→ number of runs) 11) Which team does not qualify for the finals?

16) A team wither wins by scoring more runs ( if it wins by batting first) or by wickets ( if it wins after batting second). The margin by which a team wins is calculated by converting all victories to Final Victory Margin (FVM). If a team batting second wins, the FVM is calculated as = (10- wickets lost by winning team)*5 + deliveries to spare when the match was won. If the team batting first wins, the FVM will be the difference between the runs       scored by it and its opponents. What is the highest FVM in any match?

  1. a) 61              b) 80                      c) 35                       d) 100

CASELET 9 Questions 40-44:- Answer the questions based on the information given below The Indian cricket team is known for experiments whether they work or not. There are 11 players in the team. After the world cup debacle, the BCCI was a bit worried regarding the ODI ranking of the Indian cricket team. Hence they decided to send the team to Scotland to play 7 one-day internationals each of 50 overs. One team bats while the others bowl, then the teams swap after 50 overs. Craig Crackle, the coach of the Indian ODI cricket team is a master strategist when it comes to shuffling the batting order. In a match in which India scored 340 runs, 9 batsmen were out and the last unbeaten pair of batsmen together scored 40 runs before they ran out of overs. 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. The ratio of the runs scored by the first three batsmen, Ganguly, Sehwag and Pathan (though not necessarily 1, 2 and 3 in the batting order) was 6: 4: 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. Dhoni was the 8th batsmen in the batting order, and the next person after Dhoni scored a 5. The runs scored by Tendulkar if added to the extras (bonus runs not scored by any batsmen but given by the bowling team to the batting team) equaled Ganguly’s scores. Sehwag scored one-fifth of Yuvraj and equal to Tendulkar. Srinath scored 5 times what Tendulkar scored. Munaf and Mohanty scored 18 and 22 respectively, while together they scored 25 more than Dhoni and Pathan together.
