The 12th season of the popular TV Quiz Program Kaun Banega Crorepati is currently being telecasted. Anchor Amitabh Bachchan has invited students from various backgrounds and given them an opportunity to become Crorepati in this week’s episodes.
The format of the program Kaun Banega Crorepati is that the contestants have to answer 15 multiple choice questions to win a prize of 1 crore. The penultimate question on yesterday’s episode was related to cricket. 14yr old contestant Anmol Shastri from Gujarat was not able to answer the question unfortunately for him but keen followers of cricket and people with interest in stats related to cricket would have known the answer for that.
Here is the question on cricket that Anmol Shastri could not answer and quit taking home Rs 25 lakh.
Which cricketer holds the record to be run out maximum times in ODI and test cricket.
The correct answer to this was revealed by Big B to the audience and it was the former Australian captain Steve Waugh. He has been dismissed by the means of run out 27 times in Tests and 77 times in ODIs, taking his tally to 104 in total in the two formats.
Although the contestant Anmol Shastri couldn’t win the grand prize of 1 crore and stumbled in the 50Lakh question, he was able to take home Rs 25 Lakh for his efforts. The youngster smartly quit the game instead of answering wrongly and losing his money when he faced a tough cricket question which was a smart move.
Infact, Big B was very much impressed by the calmness displayed by the teenager when he was countering the 6.40Lakhs question and 12.50 Lakh question. He even answered those questions confidently without the use of lifelines but had to make use of ‘Ask the expert' lifeline for the 25Lakh question.
