কোনো একদিন বাংলাদেশ-পাকিস্তান ম্যাচে বাংলাদেশ ৩৫৮ রান করে। তাহলে বাংলাদেশের ব্যাটসম্যানদের মধ্যে সর্বোচ্চ রানকারীর স্কোর অন্তত কত হবে।

The answer is $33$.
If all of the $11$ batsmen scored 32 runs, then the total score would be $11 \times 32 = 352$. Since the total score is $358$, at least one batsman needs to score more than $32$ runs. So, the run scored by the highest scorer should be at least $33$.
Now, if $5$ batsmen score $32$ runs and $6$ batsmen score $33$ runs, the total score becomes $358$. So, $33$ is indeed the answer.

Well that doesn't matter much. The answer is still same.
