1) 3 balls left. The batsmen intentionally waste a lot of time. The umpire gives out a warning to the batting side.
2) Ball is bowled, batsman who was in strike (97*), scores a double. 2 balls left, one run to win. Individual scores are 99* & 98.
3) Batsmen intentionally waste more time before next ball. Umpire takes notice of this and awards 5 penalty runs to fielding side. 2 balls, 6 runs to win.
4) Batsman who was in strike(99) scores 3 runs. He reaches 102 and goes off strike and celebrates century. 1 ball remaining, 3 runs needed. Individual scores are 98* & 102.
5) Batsman in strike could score 3/4/6 , complete century and win the match as well.
