Overview for The Ultimate World Cup Cricket Quiz Book
The Ultimate World Cup Cricket Quiz Book contains a variety of questions on each of the seven cricket World Cups held so far, and looks ahead to the eighth World Cup which will be held in South Africa in 2003. The questions cover every aspect of batting, bowling, fielding and team performance highlights as well as statistical landmarks. But The Ultimate World Cup Cricket Quiz Book is more than just a quiz bookâ€”it is a game that can be played at home, in the office, or with friends. The questions come in sets of six, like the balls of an over in a one-day match. Each question is graded for difficulty, and a certain number of runs can be scored off it if it is answered correctly. Wickets can also be lost if a series of questions go unanswered. There are 100 sets of questions in allâ€”like the 100 overs that are played in a World Cup match. The game can be played between two players, taking 50 â€˜oversâ€™ each, or in a larger group, with participants posing as batsmen and bowlers. Whether it is played as a game, read from cover to cover or dipped into at random, The Ultimate World Cup Cricket Quiz Book will provide hours of entertainment to anyone who is interested in the game of cricket.
