If you think you are an unbeatable cricket buff, do you know who the first married couple is to bat together in a major ICC tournament? It was South Africa women's cricket team captain, Dane van Niekerk and her wife, Marizanne Kapp, in 2018. Did you also know who gave former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi the moniker Boom Boom? It was Indian team coach Ravi Shastri.

The team that has been hosting exciting online Zoom quizzes throughout the lockdown, has had over 3,500 participants from across the globe.
