When C.K. Nayudu made his way on to Lord’s to lead India in its first-ever test match in 1932,
little did he know that seventy-five years later, the nation would find a new pitch and a new
obsession, called the Indian Premier League (IPL). What followed was a pure, unadulterated
cricket carnival, which combined the spirit of the game with explosive entertainment and a host
of Bollywood stars thrown in for good measure.

So, if you think Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli are the grandest giants that have walked across the
22 yards, brandishing the willow, here is a quiz book that promises more googlies than the ones
you may ever face on the field.

Trivia junkies will be stumped when they find out the name of the only English player to be
involved in the first season, or discover the world’s first ‘green’ stadium that took cover under solar panels. The nerd in you will be completely bowled when you know why an umpire was given ‘out’ from an IPL season, or the inspiration behind Hoog Lee.

BERTY ASHLEY is a molecular biologist with the Dystrophy Annihilation Research Trust and
works with rare genetic disorders. What is not rare though is to see him conducting quizzes or
attending them. Berty is also a lover of music—not only playing but collecting, as is evident by
his growing stack of vinyl records of jazz, Hindustani and heavy metal music. He and his partner,
Akhila, live in Bengaluru, surrounded by books, music and an assortment of pens and guitars.

TITASH BANERJEA is the co-founder of knowledge services start-up Gyaanspace, and travel
experience start-up Citybytes. He has been involved in designing and presenting innovative
knowledge solutions, whether it be live quizzes, online trivia games, or employee engagement and educational programmes for schools. He is also a cricket fanatic and, since childhood, has taken great pleasure in hogging the television to watch every single match, whether a Test, ODI, T20, IPL, BPL, CPL, the Ranji trophy, KPL, and so on. As long as it’s cricket, his eyes will be glued
to the screen. He loves sports, food and travelling and, given a chance, he would gladly indulge
in all three at the same time. He and his wife live in Bengaluru and love attending pub quizzes
and, of course, winning them as well.
