What sort of cheerleader do you want to see in cricket?
It seems they weren't happy with the cheerleaders in the World Twenty20. What would you like?
When a six is hit, they should:
Judge the quality of the delivery before dancing
Dive dramatically as if they had a chance to catch the ball
Show some muscle
When a wickets falls, they should:
Climb on top of each other to make a human pyramid of unseemly emotion
Understand the implications of the dismissal for the team and temper their moves accordingly
Roar like the Hulk
What should they do to entertain the crowd when the match slows down?
Come into the stands to take photos with the fans
Come up with jingoistic chants that rouse spectators to chant along
Engage them in a discussion on what the teams should do and then signal the opinions to the captains via charades
What should they do to warm up the crowd before the game?
Play a game with them where they guess the line-ups
Take lucky fans to the dressing room
Flaunt their team jerseys and painted faces
How should they entertain spectators during rain delays?
By getting drunk so that when the match resumes they can be more obnoxious than before
By getting wet
By distributing D/L sheets and calculators, of course
What should they wear?
The less the better
A look of astuteness
Do you think they distract from the game?
Not if they are students of the game
No, they are the game
Not if they are kept out of stands
Do you want to see them do stunts?
Like pulling statistical nuggets out of their hats? Yes!
Anything that will shut them up for a while
Any sort of strutting will do
How well should they know the game?
Well enough to play it at the international level, naturally
Enough to be commentators
Well enough to know that their opinions don't matter
