To make the maximum run, batsman should have maximum strike, that means he should play all 300 balls.
To play 300 balls he should take 3 runs on the last ball of the over.
so in a over he can make maximum – 33 runs.
so 33 * 49 Overs = 1617.
In the last over he can play all 6 balls so – 36 runs.
Total – 1617 + 36 = 1653
Answer – 1653
