cricket-pitch-curatorTop Indian Quizmaster Giri 'Pickbrain' Balasubramanyam was asked in an interview about what efforts go into creating great quiz questions.

His answer included a memorable metaphor that only an Indian quizmaster could produce.

"Information in this Google era that we live in is no longer a great differentiator. Its how you manage your knowledge that matters. Hence, we have modeled our shows around the ability the work answers out of clues or posers rather than mere recall. The effort for this is huge because our starting point is where research ended few years back – that is with identifying a fact. For us once a fact is found we work on how to present it etc.

Perhaps I am like the curator of a cricket ground who is testing players with different wickets"
