    International Cricket Quiz

    Their has been so many landmarks that has happened in the history of Cricket that it is impossible to remember everything.

    But it gives us a great feeling when we recall or revisit as it brings us boundless thrill and joy.

    Letís recall some of those landmarks in the form of Quiz

    Here you go:

    Question 1

    Tied Test

    1 There are two instances of tied tests matches in the history of test cricket.

    a When and where did the two instances of tied test matches take place?

    b. Who were the opposing teams in each instances?

    c Who were the rival skippers of opposing teams in those instances?

    d How many runs were scored by opposing teams in each instances?

    e. Which batsman was last out in each instances and who was the opposing bowler who accounted for that wicket?

    Question 2

    Name the cricketers who have achieved the rare distinction of taking a wicket with their very first ball on test debut. Since their has been multiple instances I will accept any 10.

    3 The are considered as one of the greatest all- rounders of all time.

    Besides being endowed with outstanding Batting and Bowling talent they shared one other thing in common. Both of them were gifted with Killer Looks that spontaneously drew huge crowds.

    Who are these 3 in 1 Cricketers?

    4
    a. Who is the inventor of Doosra and Teesra?

    b. What is the difference between Doosra and Teesra?

    5. When and who wore the first Helmet in a Test match?

    Answers will be posted Saturday Sept 5, 2009 by 10:00 p.m(EST)

    Who is the first to take a shot?

    I will definitley make it easy and hope that you become a runner up if not the winner.

    Frankly Speaking my objective of the Quiz tis not to challenge or give a hard time to the readers but it is meant to share Cricket knowledge amongst us so that we all get enriched.

    All is needed is a little bit of time and usage of search engine with which you can pretty much find any informan or validate that. These days these search engines and cricket websites has made our life so easy. Unbelievable!.

    The next Quiz is coming up this coming Saturday - Just 3 days from now.

    Good Luck and Cheers!
