Easy Cricket Quiz

Here in Amdocs, we have a Social Club where they arrange for screening all the important cricket on Big Screen using a projector. To inaugurate the  last year’s world cup, we had a small cricket quiz just before the west indies – pakistan match. Also, we had got Indian Team tshirts and caps to be given away as prizes. This was not a regular quiz for the regular quizzers. This was a quiz for the masses, just an excuse to give them tshirts and caps! The questions, almost all of the them very easy, are given below. The answers shall be updated soon.
