Sir Donald Bradman once wrote about a puzzle given to him by a famous astrophysicist, Sir Arthur Eddington, in 1930. He went on to explain that he had taken two decades to solve the puzzle and finally cracked it while on a ship to England to play against the British in 1948. He also said he would be happy to have someone else give it a try.
Here's Don Bradman's puzzle:
AN IMAGINARY SCOREBOARD
1.The batsmen have scored only in singles and 4s.
2.All of them were clean bowled. No one was caught or run out. There were no no balls or 'short' runs.
3.Speedwell and Tosswell bowled 6 and 7 overs respectively at a stretch.
4. Pitchwell opened the bowling, with Speedwell coming in at the other end for the next over.
5.The overs were of 6 balls each.
1. Which bowler dismissed which batsmen?
2. Who was not out?
3. What were the Fall of Wickets?
