    Cricket Tragic Quiz

    Here is a 'Dolly' style quiz, it is just a bit of fun. I have used a couple of posters names, I hope I have not upset anyone Please let me know if I have and I will remove your name


    Are You A Cricket Tragic?

    Take the CW quiz to see if you are

    1 Does your girlfriend/mother/wife/dog know a lot about Cricket, even though they are not interested in the game, because you constantly talk Cricket to them?

    A. Yes, itís my duty to spread the word, they will thank me one day
    B. I only tell them the things that would interest anyone
    C. Well, they take an interest in my passion, whatís wrong with that
    D. No of cause not if their not interested their not interested

    2. If someone was talking about Bradman and they quoted his ave: at 99.96 you would:

    A. Correct them straight away, how dare they spread false propaganda
    B. Subtly mention that the ABC has 9994 as its post box No. in all capital cities (Aust)
    C. No biggie .02 who cares
    D. I donít know Bradmanís Test average

    3. It is the birthday of someone close to you, and they are having a party, but its also the day/nighter of a ODI which you have tickets for, do you:

    A. Go to the Cricket, they will have another birthday next year anyway
    B. Go to the party, fake illness and hope no one sees you on the tele
    C. Go to the party, on condition they hire a big screen TV and show the match
    D. Give the tickets away, there will always be another Cricket game

    4. You win first prize in a raffle, you can either be honorary 12th man to your national team in the next Test Match for all 5 days. Or receive $100,000 in US dollars, you would:

    A. Not even hesitate, you start jumping around, asking do I get to field?
    B. Have a long hard think, but in your heart you know Cricket will win
    C. Go for the first 3 days and auction off the other two, Tests donít last long anyway
    D. Show me the money!

    5. You have a choice between finding a cure for cancer or a successful Test career. You would pick:

    A. Test Cricket career, they will find a cure for cancer one day anyway
    B. There must be a way you can do both, think man think
    C. Cure cancer, but never give up your dream of playing Test Cricket
    D. No contest a cure for cancer would change the world





    6. You meet your perfect partner (pc) but they give you an ultimatum Cricket or me! You would:

    A. Kick them to the curb, what time does the Cricket start?
    B. You would never date anyone who was not into Cricket
    C. Argue about the joys of Cricket, beg, plead and cry
    D. Cricket takes up to much of your time anyhow

    7. Your perfect dinner guests would be made up of:

    A. Richie Benaud, Boycs and Slats (Cricket heaven)
    B. Richie, Steven Hawkins and Carmen Electra (Cricket, brains and beauty)
    C. Warney, Carmen and Pamela Anderson (I like to move it, move it)
    D. No Cricketers I imagine they are a boring lot

    8. Your child shows great Cricketing ability, everyone tells you your kid will be the next Sobers. He comes and tells you he wants to give it away, you:

    A. Tell him you know whatís best for him, now pad up, and hit the nets son!
    B. Ask him not to waste his god given talent, offer him money
    C. Listen carefully provide options, tell him he may just need a break
    D. Who cares itís his life if he doesnít want to play thatís his choice


    Your score, give yourself 5 points for each A. 3 points for each B. 1 point for each C. and 0 points for each D. Add up your score and see if youíre a Cricket Tragic.


    26-40

    People may disparage you, hell they may even ridicule you, but you donít care, why would you? Philistines opinions donít count. You can name everyone of your Countryís Test captains since you were born, you can explain the LBW law to a Russian (who canít speak your language) by using some salt and pepper shakers. You eat your meals according to the breaks in the Cricket, Cricket tragic be damned youíre a Cricket legend. Just remember when you canít find anyone to talk to about the greatest game invented. Just log onto CW you will hear a hundred voices say; welcome back home lad.

    13-25

    You enjoy the game of Cricket, but you have many other interests. Not for you staying up all night watching the qualifiers during the World Cup, though you will probably stay up for the final if your team makes it. You are right of cause there are so many other things out there, it just doesnít make sense to devote so much time to a game.
    BUT WAIT there is still hope; you must log on to CW twice a day, you must have an argument with Richard, TEC or C_C, you must find an answer to one of Jasonís Cricket Guru questions. We want you to become a Cricket Tragic, please!

    1-12

    How did you find this page? I bet if I ask; name a game that uses a bat and ball? You would answer Baseball. If I ask what do the letters LBW stand for? You would answer Large Black Women. When ever someone mentions they play Cricket you say things like ĎFlannelled Fools, and how can you play that boring gameí. You probably think a Googly is a search engine. Well us Cricket Tragics feel sorry for you and all those like you. You, you, But wait Iím sorry I still want to help you, please log on to CW and ask lots of questions we are only to happy to show off our Cricket knowledge, and just maybe you will eventually join the winning team, the CW team.
    You know it makes sense.
