At a time when the sport of cricket is simultaneously living out an existential nightmare where its past, present and future are co-happening, thereby baffling all of us that are intricately intertwined with its existence, we at DreamCricket.com have decided to add to the fun ... yes, F-U-N.
Admit it, at some level, short-lived as it might well turn out to be, all of this talk and speculation about which version of cricket will survive and which one will be archived makes for some very entertaining opportunities for thought exchange.
Along those lines, here's an ode to cricket and its vagaries, presented to you in the form of topical quizzes. A "Test" of your knowledge in cricket with a "T20" slant to it.
Starting in March 2010, we at DreamCricket.com will be bringing to you, our weekly - okay, let's call it a - quiz called "Think it Over". [This quiz will appear every Wednesday on DreamCricket.com starting on Wednesday, the 9th of June, 2010, US Eastern Standard Time].
Each of these quizzes shall contain 6 questions related to some recently relevant topic.
These would be the 6 "balls" of the "over".
Needless to say, there are bound to be bouncers, googlies and banana swingers in each over!
You can take a shot at each of these 6 balls in the over by emailing us your answers at: FRONTFOOT@DREAMCRICKET.COM.
The subject of the email should read "Think it Over - Enter the Quiz #, Enter the name of the quiz".
You will have exactly one week to do so. Entries will be closed by midnight of the Monday after each quiz is announced.
Our 3rd umpire, Gokul, will decide how many runs - we like to call them "DreamRuns" - you score in each. The 3rd umpire's decisions will be final. This score would then go into your running tally of DreamRuns that would get added to from week to week. There would be 20 such quizzes or ... overs (remember?).
The prize, you ask? At the end of the 20th over, the quizzer with the most DreamRuns will be allowed to exchange her/ his DreamRuns for items from our PavilionShop online cricket store.
Then we move on to another ... you said it ... T20 match!
So, here comes the first over ... let's see if you can stay on your two feet at the end of these overs and, if possible, maybe even score some DreamRuns!
