This is the second Quiz, a little different in the sense that the Questions are focused on Cricket associated to a particular country. In this case India.
The Quiz is not intended to challenge or give a hard time to the readers but it is meant to recall some of the great performances of past and present cricketers so as to disseminate Cricket knowledge amongst us so that we all get enriched.
Readers can attempt to answer one or multiple questions whichever they feel comfortable.
I am not announcing the answers before next Friday.
It is possible that two or more readers may have common answers and for that points will not be deducted.
I think if we all try a bit then by Friday, September 11, 2009 , we should be able to answer all. Why not?
