I had trouble recognizing some of the images (definitely getting old!!) but will try and do my best!!

a. This is MJ Gopalan who played both cricket and hockey for India. One end in Chepauk stadium is named after him. He was a very fit and sprightly man even well into his old age (tall too), I have seen him on and off in Triplicane where he lived in the ‘80s.
b. Of the other two, no clue but I am guessing either it has to do something with being a dual international or bowling the first ball in a competition (MJ in Ranji)

2. Montenegro

3. No clue

4. Allah, America, and the Army

5. Royal Sundaram Royal & Sun Alliance of UK

5. Quaid-e-Azam

6. Easy, 6 fours in an over

7. Jews (?)

8. Heroines of Sidney Sheldon novels

9. Untimely Deaths?

10. No clue

11. SJ Surya, Vaali, Kushi, New, and Anbey Aaruyire

12. Aston Villa

13. Edelweiss

14. Maratha Warriors
