  2. 2. Q. 1 – 15 Debapriya by
  3. 3. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty What will happen next??? (video – Rahmat Shah of Afghanistan was caught)
  4. 4. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty Initially there were many concerns about the popularity & acceptance of the multinational limited overs tournament. So being very much worried about the tournament's viability & the possibility that the English weather might ruin everything what did the English officials do to minimize the revenue losses for hosting the 1975 World Cup?
  5. 5. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty Australia themselves had a Gibbsque effort before in World Cup. “Mine was an interesting one. I nicked it first ball. Marshy went to throw it in the air in celebration and it dropped on the ground. The umpire gave me not out and I was surrounded by Australian players who mentioned quite a few things about me and my family before telling me I should be leaving the field. I said: "What do you want me to do? He dropped it and now I've been given not out." Then they surrounded the square-leg umpire and all I saw was his finger raised above their heads”. No video recording was done for this match of 1983 World Cup. So this story was unearthed only few years back when the victim himself told it in an interview. Id this cricketer who won multiple Man of the Match awards in World Cups for loosing causes.
  6. 6. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty He could have been out first ball. Tinashe , who had already bowled his opening partner for a duck, curled one into him and bellowed in appeal for LBW. Steve Davis said not out. We don't know for sure, but he may have suspected an inside edge. The fielding captain reviewed the decision. There was no inside edge. But Hawkeye suggested the ball would have gone on to hit the upper half of the bails. Umpire's call. It easily could have been 1 for 2. But due to this lucky survival he achieved something first in the history of World Cup & later in the same innings he was involved in a World Record which still stands. Id him (5 points). What did he achieve first which was repeated only once since then in World Cup/what is this World Record all about (any one of the two feats for 5 points more)?
  7. 7. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty X & Y met each other in the inaugural match of the 2005 ICC Trophy (World Cup Qualifier). X won the match narrowly by just 2 runs. But Y put in a protest, claiming that the scoring in the 45th over was wrong & they had actually won. The ICC Trophy Technical Committee had ruled that there will be no change to the result of the match as the match was already over & the umpires didn’t complain about it. This controversial victory had given enough momentum to X & they qualified for the 2007 World Cup while Y missed the qualification. Who knows what would happen if the result was altered. Recently in a reverse circumstances Y have gained the ODI status while X missed it by a whisker. Id X & Y.
  8. 8. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty Taking a five wicket haul is something special. But there are 5 bowlers who took a fifer in a ODI but never got another chance to play after that feat (consider who officially retired). Among those five, top two are even more special as they did it in a World Cup match. If UAE’s Shaukat Dukanwala who took it against Netherlands in 1996 is the second in the list then id the former ICC Match Referee who is at the top. His figure against Canada in 1979 World Cup reads 10-3-21-5.
  9. 9. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty Two underdogs of 1987 World Cup were there to face each other at Indore on October 18th. But torrential rain turned the ground into a Swimming pool (in pic). The next day i.e a reserved day, the rain got lighter & water was cleared. But still the condition wasn’t suitable for playing. Yet both the captains were brave enough to play a curtailed match on an absolute mud bowl as they couldn’t afford to loose a point. Hence the first ever World Cup match where both the innings were shortened happened. This 30 overs a side match produced one of the all time World Cup classics. Id both the captains who were ready to play at any given conditions.
  10. 10. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty In spite of being the underdog, Sri Lanka won the 1996 World Cup thanks to their tremendous team work & team spirits. This brilliant fielder was fielding in the inner circle as a substitute in the semifinal. During that time people of Kolkata started to throw missiles at the ground in anger. There inform batsman Aravinda de Silva was stationed at the boundary line. Noticing this the cricketer had gone straight to the captain Ranatunga & requested him to exchange his fielding position with Aravinda who might got injured by those missiles & it would certainly hamper their chances in the final. Id this selfless cricketer.
  11. 11. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty 2019 World Cup has only two cricketers in this list. If one is given here then who is the other one?
  12. 12. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty Id the music composer…(song – Bharat Viswavijeta)
  13. 13. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty An Andheri based Pen company did the ambush marketing brilliantly during the 1999 World Cup. One could see on his TV, thousands of Indian supporters were holding banners & national flags having ‘Jeetna hai ___’ written on it at the stands. If the word in the blank is actually the name of the company which was formed in 1986 & its tagline is ‘ Pen for Everyone’ then id this good word.
  14. 14. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty He was initially dropped from the 1992 World Cup squad along with two other seniors. But was included at the last moment. He immediately proved his value with a gritty 49 & guided his team to victory in the opening match against Australia. After the match he was appreciated by would be sports minister Steve Tshwete. In the pre internet era, this image got viral as a white man was heartily congratulated by a black in the apartheid hit South Africa. He continued his brilliant form with the bat & scored 410 runs in just 8 innings with a average of 68 plus. He also won two Man of the Match awards including the one against India. Id this batsman who is part of an ‘exhaustive list of four’ in ODI.
  15. 15. Event : Cricket World Cup Quiz QM : Debapriya Chakraborty In a 2003 World Cup match, midway through the Namibian innings an automatic sprinkler suddenly popped up out of the ground to give a cooling spray to anyone within range. The Wicket-keeper looked on as the groundsman rushed to the middle while waving frantically to the control room to have the system switched off. The fielders belong to a country who have years of experience when it comes to dealing with water where they do not want it. The keeper simply trod on the sprinkler head and it obligingly went back into the ground. If the match didn’t continue someone from the fielding side might not achieve a certain World Cup first. Tilekratne Dilshan later became second cricketer to do this in World Cup. Id the opponent of Namibia & what is that certain World Cup first?
