Tests of Character
Discover yourself by taking our quizzes
Could you be an umpire?
It takes more than raising a finger, you know
. Does DRS threaten the umpire?
I don't need machines to help me count to three, thank you
If it does, I will buy it out
No, it helps us improve on our decisions
What do you do if the batsman shows dissent?
Explain to him why you chose to have him dismissed and tell him if he doesn't leave, you'll be forced to report him
Shout and scream at him till an opponent uses the surprise element to attack him
How do you ensure players don't sledge?
Don't sledge? Then what are they supposed to do?
Let them blow off some steam but step in if things get ugly
By docking their salaries if they misbehave
How do you react if you get a decision wrong?
I rehearse better
I didn't reach this level by making wrong decisions
Be philosophical about it. After all you can't get everything right
What's all the fuss about bad light?
It's not fuss. It's when there isn't enough natural light for the batsmen to see and play the ball
Bad light? I will not tolerate it. How does my hair look?
Some people have to be portrayed in a bad light; that's the nature of the game
Should a fielder's word be taken for an iffy catch?
Yes, trust goes a long way in building a successful enterprise
Makes my job easier
If it's in the script, yes
Should you be allowed to no-ball chuckers?
Chuckers? That's a new move, then?
If they try to play hard ball, yes
Yes, who can see the arm bend at the elbow better than us?
Do umpires need people skills?
Acting skills are more important
Without them, you'd end up socking Stuart Broad in the eye
Yes. Schmoozing is a big part of the business
Are neutral umpires a must in today's game?
One less reason for players to whinge when they lose
Didn't you learn from the Montreal screwjob?
Neutral? Yes, that means outsourcing, which I believe is profitable in the long run
What's your work mantra?
"Be confident in your decisions"
"Don't try this at home"
"Think big and kick ass"
