This sounds impossible, so you are on drugs and it doesn't matter because when you come down, you'll realise you don't even play cricket.What if it's the last innings of your career, you're 99* and need to remain notout to finish with an average of 50. You're given the choice of a) 99* and a 50+ average with 49 hundreds or b) 100 and out, 49.99 average, 50 hundreds
If 1 run is worth .01 to your average (the minimum amount), then you have batted for 100 completed innings. If you had batted for less innings, then your average is enough above 50 if you have 50 centuries to not fall below. If you batted for more innings, then....I don't know. my head exploded. Can anyone make this work?
