There were issues with scoring - the elims cut-offs were not announced; one team probably should have qualified but couldn't because the QM started off with the proceedings before the elims-sheet in question (pun intended) was brought to his notice.
The most hilarious round was the Rapid Fire round where the participants could give multiple answers to a question. We thought Aniket clearly showed how bad the idea was when he started rattling off all the Test venues in Australia for a question - Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney...turned out his first attempt - Perth was the correct answer but the QM was taken aback by the sheer audacity and ingenuity of the answer and took time to react. But worse was to follow. The Rapid Fire round with multiple attempts had one question which was a True/False one as well. We tried hard to find some sense/logic and the only thing we could think of was that there might be a 'None of the above' option as well - which no one seemed to have thought of. The team which won (Pradeep and ? ) was very good and deserved to win but I'm sure the win would have been sweeter had it come on a more sporting pitch.
