The scorecard of Rohit Sharma in a One day match is shown in the table below.
All runs scored are in singles, doubles , threes , fours and sixes. No extras.
Strike rate = No. of runs scored / No. of balls faced
Q.. Find the minimum strike rate Rohit would have had after facing 70 balls or deliveries
A. 40 %
B. 57.82 %
C. 34.28 %
D. None of these
Since minimum strike rate is to be calculated, worst case scenario is taken into account.
Maximum Runs he scored in the last 9 balls , 4 ×6 + 3×3 = 33 runs.
Therefore, remaining 24 runs were scored in 70 balls. In other words he has to score at least 24 runs in 70 balls in order to score 57 runs in 79 balls. Thus minimum strike rate = 24/70 = 34.28%.
