Sixballs to an over.

Historically, this number has changed over time, starting with four balls to an over, then growing to five in 1889 and to the modern six in 1900.

Sporadically throughout the 20th century, eight-ball over had been trialed, but the practice was eventually abandoned, and as of 2000, the Laws of Cricket specify a six-ball over.

The number of runs in a match cannot be predicted.

As for the bowls: it depends on the type of match played.

Test match - It is 5 days of 90 overs each and each over is 6 bowls which means 2700 bowls

One day match - It is 50 overs per team which means 100 overs which is 600 bowls

Twenty - Twenty - It is 20 over per team which is 40 overs which is 240 bowls
