    If the Cricketing World was a School, and…

    Its countries were pupils.

    India would be the rich kid, hot-shot who gets all the ladies and bullies others with his presence. It’s either his way, or the highway. Openly hated on by England and Australia for living off his dad’s money. Only kid with his license, and drives a Buggati to school every day. His Buggati is where he gets most of his action too, if you know what I mean.

    Sri Lanka would be India’s right hand man, who’s only sticking with India for the attention and benefits.

    West Indies is the cool kid, used to get the most ladies. Now just a mere shadow of his former self.

    England would be the boring, hard-working, studious kid who only focuses on acing the tests and fails the shorter assessments (quizzes) miserably. Especially the surprise ones as he needs the preparation to succeed. Never gets laid. Always wins the school spelling bee. Has the tendency to complain about workload, whereas India tends to complain about too much partying and alcohol consumption for doing poorly on a certain assessment.

    Australia, the professional, hard-working kid who aces not only the tests, but also the quizzes. But manages to consistently **** up the small homework assignments. Nonetheless, his average is still high enough for a scholarship with one of the Ivy Leagues. Gets a solid amount of ladies.

    New Zealand is the less glamorous student, who sticks by Australia. Often tries to form study groups with Australia and England, but they somehow manage to shun him. Seeks a bit of love and attention from his peers, but barely gets noticed. Nonetheless, he is quite easily the most handsome bloke in school, just doesn’t have charisma to sell himself to the crowd.

    South Africa is the kid who’s always choking on his food at lunch. However, maintains his popularity because he is the jock of the school (quarter-back of the high school football team). Is smart, however, manages to **** up the final exams consistently, when it really matter.

    Bangladesh is the slow kid in class, who always seems out of it.

    Pakistan is the bad ass, straight up gangsta’. Baggy jeans, XXL shirts. Participates in questionable activities, and often gets called down to the principal’s office. However, when his mother took him to the psychiatrist for counseling, turns out deep inside he’s really a bit of a genius. Aced the IQ tests, and there is noticeable potential.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    If you mean 'sticks by Australia looking for an opportunity to give him a banana wedgie" then yes.

    Friends with Australia? Pfft, that's a lie we tell them to lure them into our tourism industry.
