Gaurav Kapur, a renowned television presenter, and the quizmaster for the three semi-finals and final, said, “I used to think I knew my sports thoroughly until I anchored the LinkedIn ESPN Office Sports Quiz. During the quiz, I thanked my stars for being on the other side of the table as this is one of the toughest contest I have been a part of and can safely say that this show has helped me enhance my knowledge of sporting trivia. My best wishes to the BigBasket boys, for stealing the trophy from team GyaanSpace on the finals straight.”

Team BigBasket participants Rohit Suresh and Shriram Sundararajan are now set to travel to England in October to watch an English Football League match live from the stadium. Both Rohit Suresh & Shriram Sundararajan expressed great enthusiasm at winning the quiz. Avid sports fans and athletes themselves, the duo claimed that their preparation for the quiz primarily comprised of watching sports on television and following ESPN and ESPNcricinfo regularly.

Akshaya Kolhe, Head of Sales, ESPN, said, “At ESPN we strive to constantly tap into the whole spectrum of our sports fan base through concerted efforts to diversify our engagement and content, using different channels and formats. This partnership with LinkedIn has been a fruitful one for us as we were both able to harness our reach and scale to provide true sport fans with a platform to test their knowledge and demonstrate their passion for sports.”
