SAIL BSP takes Ranchi
Ranchi welcomed its first ever corporate edition of Tata Crucible with great enthusiasm and a high standard of quizzing that drew appreciation from one and all including the guest of honour.
The following six teams made it to the final from the prelim.
The final commenced with Price Waterhouse Coopers taking the early lead followed by the professors from ISB&M Ranchi. As the quiz progressed SAIL Rourkela and Bhilai began to catch up. The quiz progressed at a brisk pace and the battle got intense with every passing question and SAIL BSP moved into the lead.
The excitement went down to the final round where ISB & M came up with a stunning answer on the first question to move into striking distance of SAIL-BSP and the tension was palpable. On the second question which went down to the final clue SAIL BSP took the risk of a plus five against a minus ten and got it right.
This prompted Pickbrain to say ‘They understand the value of a plus 5 at a Crucible’ and it turned out to be so true as the final question saw SAIL Rourkela crack a 15 pointer but ISB&M had to settle for the second spot while SAIL-BSP moved into the national finals as the first Ranchi champions.
The teams received their prizes from Mr.Sushil Kumar Choudhary, Principal Secretary – Labour, Employement and Training, Govt of Jharkhand.
