    Jeopardy style Cricket Trivia

    Here's another interesting Cricket Trivia game. Its in a different format. Its in jeopardy type of format.The first person posts the answer ie a name or number and the next poster must then post a question to which the previous post would be an answer to.
    Here's an example -

    Poster 1 - Don Bradman

    Poster 2 - Who has the highest Batting average for any cricketer to have played over 20 Test Innings ? or

    Who has the record for Most centuries in consecutive Test Matches? or

    Who scored the fastest double Century in Test cricket history ?
    etc.

    Then anyone can post next . There's no need to wait for previous poster to come back and post again. But only one question (or in this case one answer) can be alive at any time .

    For instance after the above - Poster 3 posts - "26"

    Poster 4 - What is the lowest Team score in Test Cricket ?

    I hope everyone will participate in this game.

    Other rule-
    You cannot ask futuristic or potential type or future prediction type questions, Only based on current records !!

    Not even questions on opinions or vaguaries
    .
    Just simple easy trivia please !

    We want greater participation.

    Example of an unacceptable futuristic prediction type question-

    Who will win the World Cup in 2007 ? etc..


    Also its upto you who participate in this game to make it sensible and not nonsensical !

    Eg- Answer - Kapil Dev

    an example of nonsensical type question would be -

    Which former international cricketers name begins in "K" and ends in "apil Dev"?

    It doesn't take much to make a sensible question like- Who Captained India to win a World Cup? or who was India's leading wicket taker in Tests until recently overtaken by Kumble ?


    It is important the answer and question are Trivia , and not easy common knowledge information.ie it should be Trivia and not be too silly.

    Eg . Answer - Virender Sehwag

    Question - Who is India's opener in Tests ? this is not trivia .

    But rather the appropriate question would be -

    Who has made the highest score in Test Cricket for India ? V.Sehwag 309 .


    So the rules are simple please try and make it enjoyable and add to everyone's knowledge without making it silly.

    And I hope everyone will participate.
