Tests of Character
Discover yourself by taking our quizzes
When would you retire?
Many are demanding that India's big three call it quits. Would you go when asked why or when asked why you have a walking stick for a bat?
What will you think on your 30th birthday?
Thirty? That's like ten years ahead
I'm on top of the world
I'll take stock of my life and review the options ahead
If a younger player makes tons of runs in first-class cricket, batting in your position in the order, while you've had a lean trot, you think:
Good for the young man. After a decade or so he might be ready for Test cricket
Get him into the squad and let him tour with us to learn the ropes of international cricket
I really don't like you alluding to me as "old". One more time and I'm leaving
What do you think when you hear the terms "transition" and "phasing out"?
That I need to start planning my retirement
They're what I use when consoling my talentless team-mates after they are dropped
Oh my god! You're a werewolf!
Have you bought any pension-plan policies?
No, first I need to qualify to vote and drink
Yes, of course, savings are very important for sportsmen, who have such short professional careers
What, according to you, is the average lifespan of a cricketing career?
Does that include comebacks?
Same as a turtle's
It depends on how hard you work, how you maintain your fitness, and some luck too
Will you go voluntarily or be pushed?
I would prefer to go voluntarily, but if the selectors decide I am not contributing anymore, I'll accept their decision
I never go voluntarily. Everyone pushes my buttons, that's why I quit
Would you ask for a farewell series?
Sure, something like the Centenary Test would be nice
No. I try to do my best in every match in case it turns out to be my last
I did, but they said it would be redundant
Any farewell words like Brian Lara's "Did I entertain you?"?
"Hasta la vista, baby"
"It's been an honour and privilege to play cricket. Goodbye"
Depends what language the machines understand
If the selectors ask you to help them chart out a succession plan, what will you say?
I'll give them a copy of my will
I'll say, "Success is my middle name"
That it's an excellent idea and that I'd like to help groom the new players
What would you think if a player born after the date of your debut joins the team?
I'll be in the commentator's booth long before that
Feels like just yesterday when I walked out to bat for the first time
Wonder where he got his birth certificate done
