The Cricket Writer Weekly Quiz – 18th Feb ’17

Posted by on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in Cricket

 

QUIZ CLOSED!!!! 

Answer: The 3 part answer is as follows:

  1. The player is obviously Adam “Gilly” Gilchrist as everyone correctly answered.
  2. He is dancing “Gangnam style”. Also something that several people got right.
  3. This was the difficult one and a few people got this almost completely right, which shows the quality of fans on this website! Gilchrist is indeed celebrating getting the wicket of Harbhajan Singh (caught by Gurkeerat, which was a brilliant addendum I must say) with the only ball he ever bowled in T20 Cricket. For the record, Gilly never bowled in Test or ODI and bowled 2 overs in List A in his career.

 

Winner: The Winner of the Quiz is an extremely tough one, and no answer is 100% complete as we would have wanted,  but in consultation with Ritesh Misra (who sent in the quiz question), we have decided to jointly award it to Kamlesh Varshney (who was first off the block) and TwelfthMan who had the most complete answer we received.

 

Congrats Kamlesh and TwelfthMan and you both get to be Quiz Masters on cricketwriter.com any week each of you chooses before March 31st 2017. Drop us a line at anindya@thecricketwriter.com and we can get you all set up!
