    I am quite bad at cricket quizzes. There are a few spelling mistakes in the post. Just run a spell check. I thought that I should let you know…
    Best of luck with the quiz!! 🙂

    Its a shame to give up with Google God around. Give it a try. Thanks for pointing our spelling errors, I certainly dont work well at 12 in night. I have fixed what I could find out. If you find more errors, feel free to point them out to me. 🙂

      Oye! I thought we were supposed to apply our brain and think. If I have to Google then I can find all the answers. 🙂

      Yes, of course, you are free to google. Effort has been made to keep the questions somewhat google-proof. If I announced this quiz solely on brains, I bet there will be no participants. That’s the sad truth.

  2. 3 Ava May 27, 2009 at 7:57 am

    Ulp.. I am sure to land up at the bottom of this quiz. Am totally cricket ignorant.

    Give it a try, just fiddle around with search engine, who know you just might land up with right answers. Give it a go and spread the word to your friends as well. May the worthy win! 🙂
