Wills World Cup Cricket 1996

q.1 Kenya upset the West Indies by no less than 73 runs on 29th February 1996 ( Venue: Nehru Stadium, Pune - Man of the match: Maurice Odumbe)

q.2 Asanka Gurusinha who scored 307 runs with an average of 51.16

q.3 Pudential, Prudential, Prudential, Reliance, Benson & Hedges and then finally the Wills World Cup in 1996. From the 1999 Word Cup in England, the International Cricket Committee stopped giving title rights to any sponsor and it has since been simply known as the ICC World Cup.

q.4 Paul Strang had the best figures in an innings: 5/21. This was against Kenya, at an irregular international cricket venue. Can you recall?

q. Asanka Gurusinha

( New batsman Asanka Gurusinha survives a first-ball shooter from Fleming which takes the edge and misses both the stumps and a diving Healy. In the fifth over, Gurusinha escaped being run out as Michael Bevan's throw just eludes the wickets at the non-striker's end. Gurusinha is dropped twice by Fleming and Stuart Law during his 125-run stand with De Silva for the third wicket. )

Additonal question/s:

q. 6 Nolan Clarke
