Countries of the World by Sports
The quiz is therefore nonsensical. Missing test nations are Zimbabwe, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and of course England. The Caribbean countries in the quiz assemble a single test team; the West Indies but they have their own identities and their own domestic competition which is actually an international competition.
Other countries play domestic cricket but it is a minor sport such as Canada, Netherlands, Ireland and China (Hong Kong)
The actual wikipedia page for Dominica implies that cricket is the most popular sport, and research on Google heavily suggests it is too.
Australia = aussie rules/ rugba leeg
new zealand = rugby union
west indies = is not a country
It is way down the list in Northern Ireland, probably less popular in Scotland as it hasn't got the weather for it and probably is not even the most popular summer sport in Cardiff. I'd guess that was probably baseball (of the traditional variety).
But Hey-ho. Glamorgan stand a chance of being promoted from Div 2 this year if they keep current form up.
I think it'd be more fun to see something like a random stat included as a hint.
-This North American country has a population of 112,000 and uses English as the official language- answer Grenada..
-This Asian country is 90% Muslim, and became independent in 1971 following a war with Pakistan. It has been democratic since 1990- answer Bangladesh
At least I feel like I'm learning something useful that way
The source isn't the individual articles of all the countries, it's a little list that has been taken to be gospel truth. Maybe correct that.
Here is the source, supposedly "Wikipedia": https://pastebin.com/5G5vzuTM
It's a genuinely stupid site to base a quiz from, and a little investigation would sort out the Dominica question. Perhaps sometimes there doesn't have to be a featured quiz on something...
Furthermore, Trinidad is considered part of North America:
Dominica is in the "excluded" list, but the evidence is an unsourced stub article unconnected to Dominica's country article. The Dominica country article clearly implies that cricket is the most popular sport.
Furthermore, Trinidad is a clear continuation of Venezuela, but I'm happy to agree to disagree on that point.
