Sunday Times Teaser 2550 – Cricket Averages

by Graham Smithers

Published: 7 August 2011 (link)

Playing for our local team, Sam and Oliver between them took 5 wickets in each innings, taking 5 wickets each overall. Sam’s averages (ie runs per wicket) were lower than Oliver’s in both innings, but overall Sam had the higher average. All six averages were single non-zero digits.

If you knew Sam’s overall average, it would then be possible to calculate the number of runs scored against Sam and against Oliver.

What were the total runs scored against a) Sam and b) Oliver?
