    I just went through few old threads and I sort of liked the idea as I found it best way to know the people on this forum.

    1.What is your favourite food?
    Grilled Sandwich and Rava Masala Dosa :p

    2.What is your most favourite subject that you are always eager to read?
    I love solving accounts problems (Financial Accounting or Cost Accounting) and to forecast things regarding it (Financial Management). That is the reason why I am studying Bachelor of Accounting and Finance (BAF).

    3.If you get a chance to travel a country outside india, which country would you travel first?
    England and Australia. As both of them have their national sport as Cricket I would like to visit it's Cricket stadiums over there. Btw one of my cousin stays in Australia and has the citizenship of Australia.

    4.What is your favourite childhood cartoon?
    It depended on age
    0-6 years- Noddy
    7-15 years- Doraemon

    5. What has PC offered you in these 7 years?
    So far it's been great over here. I still remember I used to find out the stuffs for Cricket 07 in the Cricket 07 forum. And finally after hours of searching I would find out what I needed. I have been very active over here since November last year. I have been posting a lot in the Cricket discussion forum. At start I was a bit dissapointed as I indulged in some unnecessary arguments with the members over here. I am hopeful that with time I would develop good understanding with people over here.

    6. What is the most useless thing you do everyday?
    Browsing around the Internet to find something that I need but would find out something else and would get engrossed in doing so. :lol

    7. What annoys you like nothing else?
    Getting ignored and misunderstood by people even when I make efforts. Often people misunderstand the point I try to make.

    1.Who is Your Friend In Planet Cricket (Anyone member you Should Say)?
    So far it's You and @zwarrior but I also have had some good conversations with few others on this forum. People are always welcomed. So it's hard to pick just one.

    1. My umbrella got nicked from a UK hospital, any idea who nicked it?? :spy
    A theif :D

    2.Have you ever travelled to the UK? :wave
    Have been ages since I travelled outside the state of Maharashtra, let alone foreign. Anyways I am not financially that sound yet to be able to travel to foreign. Hope so when I start earning I can do.

    3. What household chore do you hate doing? :p
    None. I hardly get to do anything :p

    4. Have you ever been in a cable car? :p
    No. I feel like it could be a wonderful experience though.

    5. What does your local shop sell? :p
    We've got hundreds of shop over here so it's hard to tell. Some shops sell grocery, some sell clothes while some of them sell all the electronic products like Mobile Phone, PC, Smart TV, etc etc. We also have got some gift shops and toy shops around.

    6. Other than cricket, what other sports do you follow? :p
    Previously I followed a little bit of Hockey (Only Indian matches) and Kabbadi. Currently I follow none. Infact I don't get time to watch Cricket either (talking about last 6-7 months).

    7. Will you be buying any Easter eggs this year? :p
    Unfortunately, I am not aware about Easter.

    8. When you're on the beach do you wear sandals or go barefoot? :spy
    I visited a beach very long ago. But I would rather prefer being barefoot.

    9. How are you coping with lockdown?
    My Phone and my studies :p

    10. Have you read about the Brits panic buying toilet paper and creating a shortage?
    You would be surprised to hear that I don't often read or watch news :D:facepalm

    11. What do you prefer, mayo or piccalilli?
    Ummmm.... I don't think or remember whether I heard about the latter. :noway

    12.Have you ever been camping?:wave
    Ans. I haven't. Would be a great experience to have one

    13. Do you know any survival skills to be used in an emergency if you were ever stranded somewhere remote? :eek:
    Ans. Never been in such a situation. Wouldn't want to be in such either.

    14. What was the last thing you ate? :spy
    Ans. Home-made Vada Pav.

    Who do you think will win the t20 World Cup 2020?
    So far looking at the form and consistency Pakistan is clear favourites in this format. They have managed to have this consistency even after not having a settled line-up which is just commendable. I think it is equally tough to beat Australia in this format.

    How old are you? What part of Mumbai you live in?
    I am 20. I don't exactly live in Mumbai but somewhere on the suburbs in Thane District.

    1.How did you first come across planet cricket?
    2. What do you think of my avatar? :p
    I feel sad to not been able to take part in Monthly Bingo since I don't have enough VCash to participate. I lost about 2 lakh VCash in World Cup knockout matches. :facepalm

    3. Worst lie you have told? :eek:
    I don't lie mostly so it is very tough to find out anything worst.

    4. How does it feel being a member for 8 years here ? :cheers
    I don't feel any difference. Seems like I joined just more than a year ago. Effect of being inactive for so long is the reason I could say.

    1. Who is the player that underachieved the most and which is the one who performed better than his capabilities?
    I've heard a lot about Lance Klusener and I actually felt he could've been as good as somebody like Kallis.
    Steve Smith is actually the player who performed way better than he was expected to do. Starting his career as a leg-spinner he gone on to become currently the best Test batsman in the world.

    2. Do you like to travel alone or with family?
    With Family, friends, etc. It feels really tiring to travel when you don't have people to talk or do any activity sort of thing like for eg:- playing games.

    3. Who is the most underrated player ever?
    Rahul Dravid. People look at his Test average and say he doesn't bat well Overseas. They look at his ODI Strike rate and say he isn't made for the format. The fact was he spent time in Test matches and that is what important. And in ODIs he played the second fiddle role many a times and would score quicker when the Team needed it.

    4. Why doesn't Kallis get the recognition he deserves? Having a batting average around 55 and bowling around 27. He is quite underrated isn't he?
    I don't quite think so. Whenever we talk about all-rounders we rate him right at the top. And there isn't an all-rounder yet who can be easily compared with him.

    5. Sehwag or Rohit Sharma?
    Between 2000-2012 I would chose Sehwag
    From 2013 I would chose Rohit Sharma

    1. How would you describe your lockdown?
    Ans.
    Seems like having a long Summer vacation :lol

    2. Have you kept yourself physically active during lockdown? If so, how?
    Ans.
    I have never done so. :p

    3. What surprising thing have you been stocking up on (that isn’t toilet paper, masks, gloves, sanitizers)?
    Ans.
    Nothing as yet. :spy

    4. What are some things you have realized that you don’t really need during this pandemic?
    Ans.
    I realized that it is not important to advise people who doesn't really affect me. :cheers

    5. What habit have you started, or broken, during the quarantine?
    Ans.
    Learning a bit of German

    6. Have you done something during the lockdown that you wouldn't normally associate yourself with?
    Ans.
    Attending Webinars

    7. Which specific place are you most looking forward to visiting once this is all over?
    Ans.
    Going back to college maybe something I can think of just to meet the Faculties.

    8. What skills have you gained, improved or worked on during the quarantine?
    Ans.
    Tried playing some songs on Piano(on Phone) that I hadn't done for so long due to college.

    9. What’s something you own that feels useful?
    Ans.
    My phone :p

    10. What is your Covid-19 nickname/alter-ego/if any?
    Ans.
    Does something like this exist :eek: / Unnecessarily trying to prove my point.

    11. What part of your shelter-in-place/residence have you come to appreciate the most during quarantine?
    Ans.
    Don't see anything different since I haven't been away from my home for long enough.

    12. What’s a story – from a book, a movie, an article, a conversation – that you’ve been gripped by recently? Why did it capture you?
    Ans.
    I don't remember anything such.

    15. What’s something that you miss most from the pre-COVID days? And what do you miss the least?
    Ans.
    Cricket definitely. Ironically, IPL.

    16. What’s the most generous act you’ve seen recently?
    Ans.
    Being at home I haven't seen/heard anything of that sort.

    17. What has changed the most about you during quarantine?
    Ans.
    Maturity (Actually comes with age)

    18. Lastly, what do you hope we all learn or take away from this experience?
    Ans.
    Not taking our health and hygiene for granted.

    1. Which song motivates you the most when you hear it?
    Ans.



    2. Who is your favourite music artist? Why him/her?
    Ans.
    I don't hear much songs so I don't have much idea about this.

    3. What would be the first change you would make in the cricket world, if you became BCCI ICC head?
    Ans
    .
    1. I would try and support the associate nations by asking respective boards from different country to atleast let them have some exposure.
    2. I would plan different things to promote Test Cricket in Countries like US, France, Japan, Hong Kong and Switzerland.
    3. I would have a fair rankings system for all 3 formats of the game and that rankings would give more importance to performance and quality rather than results.
    4. I would ask different Countries to have sporting pitches which is fair to both batsman and bowlers rather than flat pitches which would turn a match into boring snooze fests.
    5. I would give more emphasis on having corruption free Cricket and would want the Cricket boards to co-operate in this and maintain transperancy regarding these things. I would keep a severe punishment in place to ensure that Match fixers and gamblers stay away from the game.

    4. Favourite sport to play after Cricket?
    Ans.
    Don't remember when was the last time I played Cricket apart :p

    5. Action / Horror / Rom-Com?
    Ans.
    I would go for Comedy

    6. Which languages do you know other than English? And if you could learn one more, which?
    Ans.
    I can speak Gujarati, Hindi and a little bit of Marathi. I have learnt French in my Junior college (I just remember some basics :p). Currently I am leaning German through my phone itself.

    Favourite book you have read and why?
    Ans.
    I am not a books guy. I hardly read books. There was a time when I would pick up anything random and would get engrossed in reading but not anymore. I did read Steve Job's autobiography and also Playing it My Way (Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography) just during the start of lockdown
