Answer to the Cricket puzzle:
This is possible if you include the concept of short run in the riddle.
So the following could be one of the scenarios where both batsmen can score a century without getting out.
Ball 1 : Batsman 1 hits a boundary and gets 4 runs.
Ball 2 : Batsman 1 hits a ball in the gap and they run 3 runs. But the umpire finds out that one of the run taken was short so he only credits the batsman for 2 runs and at the same time both the batsmen crossover. So the 1st batsman completes his century (4 + 2).
There is still 1 run to win and Batsman 2 is on strike.
Ball 3 : Batsman 2 hits a six and completes his century.
So both the batsmen score a 100 without getting out.
