The Ahmedabad edition of Tata Crucible started in overcast conditions followed by heavy showers, all of which not deterring the teams from taking part. The evening of quizzing that turned out to be an interesting battle started with a crisp but tough prelim. As expected it was a low scoring affair and the top six teams that made it were:
L&T : Saurabh Hazari and Sandeep Panda
Petronet LNG : Mukesh Agarwal and Mohit Raj Rana
Social Udaan : Kushan Patel and Meghshyam S
Triton Communications : Mayur Rana and Ms. Sachi Mehta
L&T : Ms. Tamanna and Nisarg
Indian Oil : FaridulQadar and Jayadev B
The final was a heady mix of questions that dazzled the teams and with most eyes on the duo from Social Udaan, who were the defending champions from their previous company, Endeavour and the advertising stalwarts from Triton. Into the lead early were the duo from L&T with Tamanna and Nisarg. As the quiz progressed they started advancing with good strikes on the buzzer.
The teams from Indian Oil, Triton and Social Udaan did try to move forward but could not hit the accelerator as L&T kept moving forward and then played it with great maturity to not contribute any negatives and clinch a massive title. It would be the first time L&T has won a title in this state.
Mr. Hasit Kaji, Vice President and Head of TCS Gujarat, was the guest of honour and gave away the prizes to the winning teams.
