An unlikely cloud cover and a slight drizzle seemed a perfect setting for an afternoon of quizzing as teams gathered for the Ghaziabad edition of Tata Crucible. A not so easy prelim set the stage for afternoon with teams scoring well despite the tall order. The finalists who made it were:

FINALISTS

  • IMT Ghaziabad: Nithin and Girish
  • Amity University: Sreshth Shah and Abhimanyu. B
  • IMT Ghaziabad: Sourav and Prashant
  • IMT Ghaziabad: Dheeraj Tewari and Laksh Sharma
  • BIM Tech: Stutidutta Mishra and Akshay Bose
  • IMT Ghaziabad: Ankoor and Somtirth. C

The final started with some quick scoring by the Amity duo and the team of Sourav and Prashant from IMT as they soon left the other teams behind. What followed was an amazing display of knowledge, tactics, grit and guts by both teams.

Riveting, nail biting and tense, the two teams battled question after question till the final one. With one question remaining Amity was in the lead and as the seasoned quizmaster took a deep breath to comment “I wish I could take both teams to the next round”, it seemed the most apt summary to the quiz.

He continued to belt out the final salvo and the IMT boys took the initiative and went for the buzzer to crack a tough poser and out-beat a very worthy Amity team to make it to the northern zonals.
