MinMax Sudoku Puzzles (Fun With Sudoku #367, #368)

There was one round named "The Duets" in World Sudoku Championship (WSC) 2017 for which both MinMax Sudoku and MaxMin Sudoku was required. We decided on the theme for these two puzzles types in which all central numbers will be given in the sequence of 1 2 3 then 4 5 6 and then 7 8 9. I prepared many puzzles of both these types based upon this theme, but each of these puzzle turned out to be very tough which required some extra hints. So we changed the theme to give central number for each of the 3x3 boxes in the same sequence from 1 to 9. My both the puzzles MinMax Sudoku and MaxMin Sudoku were selected for WSC 2017 based upon this theme. However I was left with many un-used Sudoku puzzles of these types which recently I reconstructed and now posting these puzzles in Fun With Sudoku Series as 367th and 368th Sudoku Puzzles in this Series, for 6th round of GP practice.
