    Presumeably if they were playing in said match?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    I assume that is an Aussie version of Family Fortunes?

    Dunno about Aussie, but they have Family Feuds in the States that's just a Family Fortunes rip-off (probably came first, but what the hell)

    Why would anyone want to rip off Family Fortunes? Staple diet of the regional ITV channels, says it all really.

    A personal favourite of mine is "he/she had a good innings" when someone of ripe old years passes away.
    Or when you slip over, it's "going for a six".

    When someone in a position of power is reeling out the lies, they "have more spin than Shane Warne"

    Random punters still lining up to kick you in the cods, huh? It's that trenchant, no-prisoners reporting style...
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
