Question

In cricket, run rate is defined as the number of runs scored divided by the number of overs bowled. Team 'A' scores 260 runs in 50 overs batting first. The other team batting second scores at half the run rate of the team batting first and plays entire 50 overs. How many runs did the team batting second score? [3 MARKS]


Solution

Steps: 1 Mark
Application: 1 Mark
Answer: 1 Mark

Given that
Team 'A' scored 260 runs in 50 overs. 
So, run rate of the team batting first =(260/50)

= 5.2 runs per over

The team batting second scored at half the run rate of the team batting first

Run rate of team the  batting second
= (5.2/2)

= 2.6 runs per over

Runs scored by the  team batting second

=(50)×(2.6)

= 130 

Hence, the team batting second scored 130 runs.
