Which side of a player's strike would you be on?
You're either with us or against us
The Australian players threaten to strike if they don't get a share of television revenue. What's your opinion of their threat?
You must have what is rightfully yours
Let 'em have it, as long as I don't have to fork over more cash
It's just a threat
The international schedule is overburdened and FICA calls for players to refuse to participate unless the load is reduced. What's your response?
Will I get a discount if the boards field second-string sides?
You can't kill the goose that lays golden eggs
You can't let a goose tell you how to play
The Indian board suspends Sachin Tendulkar for saying the BCCI is run by "a bunch of cretins who I could buy out and turn into a T20 franchise in less time than it takes me to get a hundred hundreds". His team-mates, touring abroad, refuse to take the field till the suspension is withdrawn. You think:
Of sending them a photo of their IPL contracts piled next to a bonfire
Is it on video? How do I buy the rights?
Ha! At last the BCCI has met its match
The New Zealand players all opt for the IPL when it clashes with a Test series. Do you think the board should revoke their central contracts?
And get fresh players from the Antarctic?
No, playing in the subcontinent in April-May is punishment in itself
No. It should cancel the Test series, which no one would have watched anyway
Tired of only getting to play Zimbabwe, Bangladesh's players refuse a tour to the country and demand they should no longer have to play "minnows". You think:
I'll support any demand for no more Bangladesh-Zimbabwe series
What have they been smoking?
That's right. If the players aren't interested, how will you promote the game?
Shah Rukh Khan says that unless he is allowed to swagger into the Wankhede Stadium, trash it with graffiti and cigarette ash, he won't field a Kolkata Knight Riders team in the 2013 IPL. Should his players support him?
He's such a terrible actor, I'm not sure if he's serious or not
Yes, provided they get paid for not playing
Of course! Can you imagine the TRPs for the Mumbai-Kolkata match?
The West Indies Players Association calls for a boycott against the West Indies board when Christmas cards from the WICB to the players don't begin with "Dear". How should the WICB react?
By sending hand-written apology notes and gift hampers to every player
By sending poisoned Christmas pudding to the players' association HQ
By announcing a no-holds-barred match between Denesh Ramdin and Viv Richards, to be televised live
Upset at being accused of ball-tampering, the Pakistan team occupies the Lord's pitch and refuses to continue the match. What should the MCC do?
Strike the ball-tampering clauses from the laws of cricket
Ah, Pakistan's tour of England. The stuff my dreams are made of. Never a dull moment
Have the match moved to The Oval and award it to the opposition as a forfeit since the Pakistan team didn't turn up
The South Africans refuse to participate in the World Cup unless the ICC makes sure no "choking" references are made at all. Should the ICC agree to their demands?
Rubbish. South Africa are lucky they get to play, considering what a laughing stock they are at every World Cup
Naturally. South Africa has provided the World Cup with some of its most memorable moments. The ICC owes them
Yes, but lay a demand of their own: that South Africa come to the post-match press conference wearing oxygen masks after they inevitably choke in a knockout match
