Did you know the only venue at the 2007 Cricket World Cup named after a current country Premier? The Delhi Ranji Trophy player, who went on to represent a different country at the 1996 World Cup and the venue at the 1996 World Cup named after a former Hockey India captain?

Learn the answers to the aforesaid questions in the book WHO-ZATT, which is full of these teasing deliveries and several hundred more for cricket enthusiasts.

The book has been divided into eleven sections, covering all the ten editions of the world cup, including the present one apart from the General World Cup and Cricket Quiz.

There are so many mistakes in the book while compiling the questions e.g. who retired from international cricket with a knock of 7 and gave away 40 in four overs in the 1996 World Cup match against Sri Lanka? Answer: Manoj Prabhakar.(Page 108) Actually, Manoj Prabhakar had conceded 47 runs in his four overs. Lasith Malinga has been mentioned as Lasith Maling (Page 176) Allan Border as Alan Border (Page 38), Roy Fredericks as Roy Federicks on Pages 11 and 14. Sarfraz Nawaz as Sarfaraz Nawaz (pages 11 & 12) Dilip Sardesai as Dileep Sardesai (Page 6). Danish Kaneria as Danesh Kanaria (Page 74), Gaddafi Stadium as Gadaffi Stadium (Page 101) and Gaddaffi (Page 106), Anshuman Gaekwad as Aunshuman Gaekwad (Pages 12, 79, 102, 142 & 153), Headingley as Headlingley (Page 22), Alvin Kallicharran as Alvin Kallicharan (Pages 13, 14 & 15), Aaqib Javed as Aaquib Javed (Pages 98 & 108) and Bishan Singh Bedi as Bishen and Mushtaq as MushtaQ throughout. Besides a few players have different spellings in different pages e.g. Saleem Malik (Page 76) and Salim Malik (Page 88).

Apart from several irritating spelling errors throughout the book, this is an interesting compilation nevertheless by Gautam Bhimani and Navneet Prabhu. Well researched
