What sort of a Test innings would you be?
Pakistan's 49 has a great personality. Do you?
During a match, you want spectators to:
Develop bladder problems because they can't afford to go to the loo
Batting should be like:
Walking into a teen's bedroom in the dark: you never know what you'll trip on next
A Peter Jackson movie: when it finally ends, you can't wait for the sequel
Chewing gum: chomp on it too long and it will lose flavour
Bowling should be like:
A hair-weave on a diva's head: unseen but adding volume
Walking unannounced into a teen's bedroom: there's going to be screaming and unpleasantness
A wardrobe malfunction at an awards show: planned, clinical and talked about for weeks
During the innings, the players in the dressing room are usually:
Writing their autobiographies
In need of professional help
Walking in and out of the door
If a fan arrives late to the stadium, he will:
See what he missed
Think the start was delayed
Have to catch up on YouTube
How do the media react to your type of innings?
They crib about not being able to get to their word limits
With unbridled glee and bragging about a rise in circulation
As if the game is dying
How do fans react to your type of innings?
Ecstatically, because for the next 50 years they can tell people they were there
Grumpily, because they didn't get their money's worth
Happily, because they get a chance to get a good suntan
