The show had a question related to cricket for two consecutive episodes on September 19 and September 20. In the episode that aired on September 19, the contestant was asked a question about Indian leg spinner Anil Kumble’s historic feat of 10-for-10 wickets, while another contestant was asked a question about Virender Sehwag in the episode that aired on September 20.

For the question about Sehwag on September 20, the prize money was 3 lakh 20 thousand rupees. The question about Sehwag was, “In which stadium did Virender Sehwag score his only double century in ODIs?"  Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Holkar Stadium in Indore, and the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai were given as the four options for this question.

The answer is the Holkar Stadium in Indore.  On December 8, 2011, at the ODI India vs. West Indies match in Indore, Sehwag became the second cricketer from India and the world to score a double century, with the first being Sachin Tendulkar. Sehwag demolished the West Indies bowling as he scored 219 off just 149 balls, taking the team total to 418, which is India’s highest total in ODIs to date. 

In the episode that aired on the 19th, the prize money for the question about Kumble was 12 lakh 50 thousand rupees. The question about Anil Kumble was, “Who was the umpire at the bowler’s end when Indian spin giant Anil Kumble took 10 for 10 wickets (against Pakistan) in a single innings in Tests?"  The four options given to the participant were Piloo Reporter, S Venkataraghavan, David Shephard, and AV Jayaprakash. The correct answer is AV Jayaprakash, a former first-class cricketer and umpire from Karnataka.
