I was in 10th standard when a team of two were to be selected (for a quiz). The English teacher chose two debaters in the team, but both of them suggested my name and Chirag sacrificed his spot for me (thanks for that).
Our school was an underdog and our admin said bring them back if they don't qualify. So, we decided to do enough just to make it on the stage and finished as the last team to qualify. We were not concerned about the finals and just had fun.
We eventually ended up winning on the buzzer tiebreak. It was great fun.
