Has too much cricket burnt you out?
Does bile rise to your mouth when you see bat, ball or Shastri?
When you wake up in the morning, what's the first thing you think of?
"God, strike me down if Dad brings up the merits of DRS over breakfast again"
"Damn, is it too late to change my trump?"
"As long as I'm around, cricket is the winner"
What do you do when there's a live international match on TV?
Watch every over
Watch the last ten overs
Watch and give expert views, even during ad breaks
What do you do when there's a live domestic match on TV?
They show domestic cricket on television?
Take notes on players' performances and send a detailed report to the board
Sorry, I only do international cricket
Do you read all the cricket news in the newspaper every day?
I only read experts' columns
I cut out the cricket articles and read them separately so I'm not distracted by the other junk
I skim the headlines, usually looking for the latest antics of S Sreesanth
Not doing enough. It should have live commentary for club cricket, more analyses pieces per game and videos of nets
Whoa, when did it change its name?
Terrible because it takes eyeballs away from television
If you got a free ticket for a match, you would:
Who needs a ticket? Give it to one of my female admirers who'll grab it as fast as a tracer bullet
Check to see what stand it is for; also, no way would I watch it if it were to be played in India
You're giving me a free ticket? You are? You are? Gosh! Can I leave now? What do I wear?
The IPL is:
Where cricket goes to die
A cheat. It promised 94 games and gave only 74
Cricket's Citi Moment of Success
At a quiz about the previous season's cricket, you will:
Be the quizmaster because it would be unfair to participate. I know all the answers
Ask to be woken when it's over
Give blow-by-blow account of the proceedings from the sidelines
What is your opinion of player burnout?
They can't be feeling worse than I do
Rubbish. Travelling for cricket is the best thing in the world. Ingrates
It's a concern. Each country should have three teams for three formats and they should all play simultaneously
Do you think the game will lose some of it audience because of too much cricket?
What it loses in quantity, it will gain in quality
Yes. You know what's an under-rated spectator sport? Kite-surfing
Not as long as it retains astute observers like me
What is your worst cricketing nightmare?
The remote control's mute button
Player strikes and broadcaster strikes
All these Twenty20 leagues that are sprouting up everywhere
If you overhear a cricketing debate going on next to you, you:
Jump in as a mediator and ask pertinent questions like, "how do you feel about that?" and "a good toss to lose?" and remarks such as "Oh you gave it the kitchen sink" and "a lot of positives there"
Join in, buy them some drinks and tell them the issue really is and how it must be solved
Tell them to shut up and understand there are other important things in life as well
