Answer to the Cricket Riddle:
8th Batsman would be shown Not Out.
Like I said this is a tricky one.
Let’s look at it ball by ball.
In the first over the Batsman No.1 will have the strike and the Batsman no.2 is at the non-strikers end.
Over No.1: The fall of wickets would be like this;
Ball 1: Batsman No.1
Ball 2: Batsman No.3
Ball 3: Batsman No.4
Ball 4: Batsman No.5
Ball 5: Batsman No.6
Ball 6: Batsman No.7
Over changes and the strike rotates so now Batsman No.2 will have the strike and Batsman No.8 will be at the non-strikers end.
Over No.2: The fall of wickets would be like this;
Ball 1: Batsman No.2
Ball 2: Batsman No.9
Ball 3: Batsman No.10
Ball 4: Batsman No.11
Since batsman No.8 is at the non-strikers end he will be shown as Not out in the scorecard.
