In 10 overs total run = Runrate * number of overs = 3.2*10 = 32

Remaining runs to score = 282 - 32 = 250

Run Rate for remaining 40 overs = 250/40 = 6.25

run scored in 1-10 overs ; 32
and balance score to reach target = 282-32 ; 250
and overs 40 ; avg reqd ; 250/40 ; 6.25 IMO B

Letting n = run rate of the remaining 40 overs, we can create the equation:

10(3.2) + 40n = 282

32 + 40n = 282

40n = 250

n = 250/40 = 25/4 = 6.25
