The Cricket Writer Weekend Quiz – 4th March ’17

Posted by on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 in Cricket



Answer: The 3 part answer is as follows:

1) The Scoreboard is from the Second Test at Lord’s between England and West Indies in 2000.
2) It was the first occasion when at least a part of all 4 innings in a Test match was played on a single day.
3) Incredibly, this rare occurrence took 123-years to happen the first time but has happened twice in the years since. – Second Test India v New Zealand at Hamilton 2002 and then First Test South Africa v Australia at Cape Town in 2011.

Winner: While we asked only for the next instance when this happened, which was 2002, one answer gave both the instances, so in consultation with Kamlesh Varshney (who sent in the quiz question), we have decided to jointly award it to Hemant Varshney (who was first off the block) and Rahul Navin who had the most complete answer we received.

Congrats Hemant and Rahul and you both get to be Quiz Masters on any week each of you chooses before March 31st 2017. Drop us a line at and we can get you all set up!

The next quiz will be up on Saturday 11th March 2017 and on every Saturday thereafter!
