5 Questions from the Prudential World Cup 1979

Quiz No.14
Often know as the "lost" World Cup because it's the least discussed of them all, quizzers generally tend to avoid choosing this one as a topic. Presenting 5 relatively simple googlies:

q#1 He was yet to captain Pakistan in a test match, yet he had captained them in the 1975 World Cup, and now yet again. Who?

q#2 England played West Indies in the final. Whom did each one beat in the semi-finals?

q#3 His 2 for 15 against Australia and another couple of wickets against Pakistan made the English captain change his mind and he decided to forego the 5th specialist bowler for a batsman in the later game. Who was this surprise bowler who also took a wicket in the semi-final?

q#4 Canada scored a record low 45 in their Group A match against England. How long did their innings last.
a) 15 overs or less b) More than 15 overs but less than 30 c) More than 30 but less than 40 d) More than 40 but less than 50 e) More than 50 overs

q#5 Canada didn't win a single match. Which other team?
