Solution

The correct option is B Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion

'Quadrangular' cricket in colonial India did not represent regions but it represented religions. The teams included Muslims, Parsees, ruling Europeans and Hindus were later added. Pawlankar Baloo was first great slow bowler. But, because of his caste, Baloo was never made captain of the Hindu cricket team in the Bombay Quadrangular tournament. His brother Vithal led Hindu team to the victory with his century. Thus, the victory of the 'Hindus' in the 'Quadrangular' cricket tournament in 1923 was considered as victory of Gandhiji’s war on 'untouchability'.
