Today we are giving you another sporting chance of an instant win.

In last Saturday's paper, there was a Questions Of Sport multi-choice scratch card which, if you answer three sporting questions correctly, gives you the chance of an instant cash prize from pounds 1 to pounds 1,000.

You don't have to be an obsessive fan to play - a good general sporting knowledge should suffice. But remember, you only get one chance to answer each question, so if you are in any doubt, check it out.

In tomorrow's Independent we will give you a new Questions of Sport scratch card. Like your last card, it contains eight games so that you can play daily through to Friday 26 January.

As well as the daily instant cash prizes there is a weekly accumulator prize of pounds 5,000 waiting to be won.


Today we are playing the section of the card dated Friday 19 January. Below are three sporting questions, each with three possible answers coded as A, B and C. Scratch off your answer to Question Twenty-two, either A,B or C in the Q22 column then repeat for Q23 and Q24.


Q22 Who topped the England batting averages in the recent Test series against South Africa?

A: Mike Atherton

B: Jack Russell

C: Robin Smith

Q23 Which British Formula One driver has opted to join the Indycar circuit for the 1996 season?

A: Damon Hill

B: Martin Brundle

C: Mark Blundell

Q24 Who retired this month after 25 years as head coach of the Miami Dolphins?

A: Mike Ditka

B: Don Shula

C: Vince Lombardi

After you have played the last game on your card, total the cash amounts you have revealed. If your total is pounds 5,000 you win or share the pounds 5,000 accumulator prize. You could also win today's instant prize of pounds 100 by revealing an asterisk.
