Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is a popular quiz TV program hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. In the latest episode of the show a contestant was asked a cricket based question for 6.4 Lakhs. The answer to that question was Suresh Raina. He failed to answer it correctly and was forced to leave the show with 3.2 Lakhs.
Shah from Uttar Pradesh was the contestant in participation on Monday's episode. He successfully navigated through all the 10 questions and managed to secure 3.2 Lakhs. But the 11th question for 6.4 Lakhs troubled him beyond words. The question was based on ICC Men's T20 World Cup.
The question was: Who is the only Indian to score a century in ICC Men's T20 World Cup?
The options were: Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and Rohit Sharma.
Suresh Raina was the correct answer for that question. He couldn't find the answer to it own his own and took the help of 50-50 helpline. Two options were removed and the remaining options were Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina. He yet again failed to find the right answer and locked Rohit Sharma as his choice. The answer was wrong and he was forced to leave the competition with 3.2 Lakhs.
The Southpaw from Uttar Pradesh who retired from International cricket last August is the only Indian to score a hundred in both T20 and ODI World Cups. His T20 World Cup hundred came in May 2, 2010 against South Africa. He scored 101 runs in that innings including 9 fours and 5 sixes in 60 balls. He maintained a strike rate of 168.33 throughout the entire innings and helped India clinch the match by 14 runs.
