Brian Lara's 400 not out is the only quadruple-century in international cricket history. It was his 7th and final innings for West Indies in that 2004 series against England, and his first six scores were 23, 8, 0, 0, 36 and 33. The match scorecard is here.

The Belgian pronounce it correctly as two s though, I mean the Belgian who are not stupidly mimicking the awful, misguided pronounciation of the French.

That's how I know it, but it seems it's "...denepura" in English. What a lame question, if the quiz was not as hard as it is, this would still be a good reason no to feature it.

20/20. I was very lucky getting the cricket related answer in just a few tries, that was the only one I totally had no idea. How is it possible it's not even the less guessed answer???

Since 1924, Tashkent was a part of Uzbek SSR, and not of Russian SFSR. Both of them were parts of Soviet Union, but that definitely didn't make Tashkent "Russian".

Not very hard. I beat Quizmaster by 4. Guessed on Belmopan and Saint John's but they weren't hard to guess given the clues. Made no attempt at Jaya-whatever. Ran out of time before I could think of Ljubljana.
