7. Ideas can change the game! Kerry Packer had popularised the
idea with World Series Cricket in the 1970s, but the ICC gave the
concept a big push when Australia and New Zealand co-hosted the
most spectacular World Cup till then in 1992. Which 'idea' is being

20. Who is X? Zimbabwes first ODI match in history was against
a well-established Australian side, with no player having had
previous experience of one-day cricket at the highest level. The
1983 World Cup match will not just be remembered for Zimbabwe's
first win in an ODI. It will also be remembered for the genius of
captain 'X', the man that scripted it, hitting 69 not out and then
taking 4 for 42.

22. Identify X and Y The first ever hat-trick in a World Cup

line-up with a fiery five-wicket haul.

26. Identify the Bowler Bowler 'X' came running in to bowl the
final ball but stopped just before delivering it ,as he found
Jaffar backing up too far at the non-striker's end. 'X', who
eventually ended with figures of 4 for 40 again ran in to bowl the
last ball, off which two were required, with Abdul Qadir on strike,
but stopped before delivering the ball due to Saleem Jaffar backing
up too far at the non- striker's end. However, he chose not to run
Jaffar out and headed back to his mark. The Pakistan government had
given him an award in the form of a medal for showing this

29. Bad decisions make you pay! Unbeaten South Africa were huge
favorites to beat struggling West Indies in the 1996 World Cup. But
in the knockouts,South Africa had decided to leave out Allan Donald
for this match to bring in the extra spinner in Paul Adams, in
hindsight it proved to be an ill-advised move. West Indian Player
'X' who came at no.3, unleashed a brilliant knock of 111 to steer
West Indies into the semis.

31. Unexpected exit of the favourites New Zealand's captain 'X'
had to decide whether to rest in the 1992 semi-final against
Pakistan or risk aggravating his injury. After New Zeland posted a
formidable 262, 'X' felt comfortable to sit out during the Pakistan
innings and allow his deputy, 'Y', to take over. Pakistan were 140
for 4 after 35 overs, needing 123 from the final 15. But then Z's
blitzkrieg 37-ball 60 took away the match from New Zeland. Identify
the Players X,Y and Z.
32. X Martin Crowe Y John Wright Z Inzamam-ul-Haq
33. No one provokes the Master! It was the 2003 World Cup and
'X', just before the match said that he worked out a way to get
Sachin out cheaply. He made the mistake of provoking Sachin and
spoke about him being just another batsman. He also said that
perhaps the short ball might do the trick against the Indian
batting line-up. The talk saw Sachin single out 'X' for special
treatment including a pull shot for a spectacular six over
mid-wicket and out of the stadium in Durban. For many, it remains
the shot of the tournament it was violent, it was graceful, it was
pure Sachin. In the same match, a brilliant bowling performance by
Bowler 'Y' for India, who ended up with his career-best 23/6 saw
India wrap up things convincingly.
34. X Andrew Caddick Y Ashish Nehra
35. He kept us alive with a mesmerising show against South
Africa and then totally blew Pakistan apart in the final. I had the
best seat in the world to watch him bowl and he was terrific Who
said this ? on whom?

37. And that's why cricket is called Gentlemen's Game Captain
'X', though devasted by his team's unexpected loss to the
opponents, showed a gesture of true sportsmanship. Once back in his
hotel room, he asked opponent team's Player 'Y' if he could see him
in his room. 'Y', not knowing what to expect, knocked on the door
of 'X' with a little trepidation. To Y's surprise, X presented him
with a signed bat as a token of his appreciation. Y later quoted:
I'm overwhelmed. For him to do so after his team's chances in the
World Cup had taken a knock shows the spirit in which X plays his
cricket. We now have a number of admirers for him in our dressing

am happy that I took a hat-trick. The old ball was going to reverse

unfortunately didn't get it.
