So you want bigger than a 50T big ring? That's why you want a different crankset?

You could use a square taper crankset and then use whatever bottom bracket length you need to in order to get a 50mm chainline. That's the upside of such cranksets, you can adjust the chainline.

I'm thinking you could get a 130/74 or 110/74 bcd crankset and run a 52 or 53T big ring.
