    42nd Thread - 2013 Ashes Drinking Game

    2013 Ashes Drinking Game

    Take one drink when…
    • A boundary is scored
    • Someone appeals
    • A wide or no-ball is bowled
    • Jonathan Trott marks his guard
    • Jimmy Anderson gets someone to play and miss
    • James Pattinson looks angry
    • Someone talks about Graeme Swann taking wickets in his first over
    • Nasser Hussain is bitter about an umpiring decision
    • Ashton Agar’s 98 is mentioned


    Take two drinks when…

    • Peter Siddle is described as having a “big heart”, “runs in all day”, or variants thereof.
    • Stuart Broad pleads for a review
    • The David Warner vs. Joe Root incident is mentioned
    • Steve Smith is described as an all-rounder
    • David Gower says something pretentious
    • Kevin Pietersen hits a six
    • A substitute fielder is involved in a dismissal (bonus shot if Gary Pratt)


    Take three drinks when…

    • A wicket falls (double if it’s Ian Bell or Rad Haddin to a terrible shot)
    • A catch is dropped
    • Someone suggests England is ball tampering
    • Ed Cowan faces his 100th ball


    Finish your drink when…
    • Phil Hughes edges to the slips cordon
    • Shane Watson reviews an LBW decision and is wrong
    • Graeme Swann takes a wicket in his first over
    • Someone scores a century (bonus shot if Michael Clarke or Alastair Cook)
    • Steven Finn kicks the stumps over
    • The England team does the sprinkler
    • It rains


    All drink amounts are doubled whilst Ed Cowan’s strike rate is above 50.

    Skull a Moree Handbag every time a commentator says "You don't see many late cuts these days" as the 11th late cut of the day runs down to third man.

    And whenever they say "third man has gone out of the game".

    With these suggestions you may as well just be on a drip.

    Sky commentary special -

    One swig:

    -Someone mentions that James Taylor "Didn't do anything wrong" before he was dropped
    -Bumble says "Wallop", "Full pint" or "Start the car"
    -Someone proposes a second spinner for Old Trafford
    -Holding gets arsey about a UDRS decision that is obviously correct
    -Botham mentions rugby, rugby league or AFL
    -Nasser mentions "the west wing" of Gower's mansion or makes reference to his butler
    -Warne starts any sentence with "Why wouldn't you...?"

    Two swigs:

    -Bumble mentions The Fall or The Inspiral Carpets
    -Atherton says that Warne didn't bowl a proper flipper after his shoulder surgery
    -Botham refers to his old bowling partner as "RGD Willis"
    -Warne mentions any old Victorian player using his full given name: "Mervyn Gregory Hughes", "William Morris Lawry", etc
    -Any reference to Nasser's parsimony

    Down drink:

    -Camera pans to an ex Aussie great in the crowd and someone says "Now he could bat/bowl/catch"
    -Bumble mentions getting hit in the cobblers by Thommo
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."
    - Simon Barnes renders further comment on KP's autobiography superfluous in a sentence
