Ireland bows out of World Cup... QUIZTION #38
by Vijay Jeedigunta
Apr 19, 2007

WORLD CUP CRICKET QUIZ:

April 19th, 2007: Quiztion of the Day - 38

There isn’t much to write about the Ireland and Sri Lanka game with Ireland getting thrashed for their lowest total of 77 in the tournament and Sri Lanka blitzing through with an 8 wicket victory as the match ended in less than 3 hrs and in 37.4 overs. But the amount of entertainment Ireland has provided during their existence in the tournament in their maiden attempt at game’s premier event will be cherished by many for a very long time to come including the players themselves.

The fighting Irish finally bowed out of World Cup, without giving enough fight as they have done in almost all of their games except against Australia. However, they did win many hearts around the Caribbean Islands. They truly were a joy to watch and many of the members of the current team will be remembered for a long time for their antics on the field including the new form of celebratory dances we became familiar with.

Today’s ‘Quiztion of the Day’ relates to the below hundred totals in World Cup. Here it is:

Majority of the totals less than 100 runs in World Cup were recorded by non-test playing nations. Since the inception of the World cup in 1975, out of the 11 such totals including Ireland’s 77, ten of them were achieved by non-test playing nations.

Sri Lanka never achieved a total below 100 as a test playing nation. Though they were bowled out for 86 against West Indies at Manchester in 1975, at that time they were still playing as a non test playing nation. Which are the only test playing nations that were dismissed for less than 100 in a World Cup match? Provide the details.

Remember to email your answers for each quiz individually to
vijay@dreamcricket.com with the subject line as 'Quiztion of the Day - X' (X being the question number) through out the tournament duration. Results will be first posted on http://www.dreamcricket.com/ website within a week of the World cup Final.

Cheers...
