ESPN Star Sports quiz goes according to the Gameplan

The third chapter of the Corporate Challenger Quiz organised by ESPN Star Sports took place last night in Mumbai. Earlier this month the event took place in Delhi and Bangalore.

The well attended affair was bubbly thanks in no small part to the compere Charu Sharma who made sure things moved along smoothly. However at the end of nearly four hours, three teams were tied with 90 points. It finally came down to a couple of questions. Jeet and Malavika Banerjee of Gameplan, a company with huge sporting connections, ran out the winners by a whisker with 110 points, Infosys Pune (100) took second spot while HSBC (95) came in third.

Introducing the show,Manu Sawhney, managing director, ESPN Software, said Corporate Challenger Quiz was a natural extension of the School Quiz Olympiad started a couple of years ago which now covers 2000 schools in 23 cities. ESPN was committed to promoting excellence in sports both physical and intellectual, he said. Sawhney also said that the channel would take the initiative forward by taking the show on air next year and so more companies will send in their entries.

With two participants making up a team representing their company, the quiz began with a written test for all the 49 participating teams. Based on the number of correct answers, six teams (Gameplan, HSBC, Infosys Pune, Phillips, NSE and Cadbury India) qualified to participate in the finals. The six teams went through 10 rounds before the winners were decided.
