Tests of Character
Discover yourself by taking our quizzes
Do you have the spirit of cricket?
All that drama about the Ian Bell run-out made us want to introspect and judge our own characters
If you saw a batsman stray out of his crease, like Bell did, thinking the ball was dead, what would you do?
Run the b****** out, and kick him in the noggin for good measure
Look the other way, smiling benignly, obviously
Depends on how much he had scored
Would you walk if you had edged a ball?
Like an Egyptian
Yeah. Nonchalantly to square leg and back
If the series used Snicko, I would
What if you gloved it?
Not unless I turned into a zombie and was forced to move from the crease in order to find warm human flesh to gnaw at
In a flash
Hot Spot's been a bit iffy recently, right? I'd go with the ump
Would you claim a catch even if you knew you had grounded it?
Only if I was possessed by the devil
Naturally. It's the umpires' job to decide whether or not to give it out
With the number of TV cameras trained on the ground these days? No way
Would you use candy to aid swing?
I take my glucose through an IV, just to avoid this sort of situation
Sure. Candy doesn't make a bulge in your pocket
Of course. I wish they'd start making Vaseline-coated sweets
Would you call back a batsman if you found out he had been dismissed off a no-ball?
If he's a tailender
Yeah. I also donate my match fee to a charity of his choice to make up
Are you kidding me? What kind of sick questions are these?
Would you run out a batsman who fell short because he collided with the bowler?
I'd use him as a springboard to get to the stumps
Excuse me while I escort him to the hospital
No, that would look so bad
Do you think it's wrong to use a graphite rod in your bat?
Yes. I think reinforced steel works better
How could you defile something as sacred as a cricket bat by inserting a foreign object in it?
No, it's the same as using a squash ball in your glove
How about bouncing tailenders?
That's something only a lowdown, dirty rotten scoundrel would consider
I am a lowdown, dirty rotten scoundrel. So sue me
Can those tailenders bounce me when it's my turn to bat?
Is commiserating with an opponent on losing the right thing to do?
Real men post picture of their tearful opponents to Twitter
It's brilliant, especially if you can get a Flintoff-Lee-like photo out of it
Of course. And then we all have a drink in the dressing room
