Problematics | Scores to settle on cricket pitch

Sep 19, 2022 06:43 PM IST

This week on, everyone who solved one or both of last week’s puzzles gets acknowledged here, in the online version of Problematics, while the print version lists those who solved both. Here are this week's puzzles:

The time has come, unfortunately, for tough decisions to be made. So strong has your response been that I needed to make a choice: should I acknowledge every one of you, leaving ourselves with print space for only one puzzle? Or, should I continue with two puzzles, and run myself out of space to list the previous week’s solvers? I choose the middle path: everyone who solved one or both of last week’s puzzles gets acknowledged in the online version of Problematics, while the print version lists those who solved both. And it’s two puzzles as usual, so please keep bombarding me with your mails.
