    Icon6 Cricket News Site redesign~~~

    So for those who have been following my small amount of (hilariously awesome) posts on this forum, you would be aware that I'm redesigning the website for Mind The Windows.
    I pitched my presentation today and it was the most hilarious thing ever. I forgot what stumps were called (thankfully someone piped up for me), I stumbled over the name reference because I couldn't remember the guy aside from Tino, and yet somehow they believe I am super passionate about cricket. Literally had to stop myself from laughing when my tutor said "Sometimes your own emotions get in the way due to how much you love this...." Like, don't get me wrong. I don't have anything against cricket, I am just not super knowledgeable. I know about design, and so my presentation sounded on point and like I knew everything because I discussed the systems thinking of websites.
    Anywho, I have created this thread to like talk about the redesign and stuff as I go because that way I don't need to make a new one every time I want opinions.
    Please accept me. According to non cricket followers I have assimilated into the cricket community successfully.

    (P.S. I am not sledger, but he seems legit)

    We really need a 'Lies' thread to move this into. I can't think of anyone less​ legit than sledger.

    Wait a minute you forgot what Stumps were called?

    Pop quiz with no help from Danny boy.

    1. What was Don Bradman's average?
    2. What nation did Jeetan Patel play for?
    3. Who is the captain of South Africa?
    4. Where on the field would you stand if you were the Sticky Wicket Mid Off?

    I fully acknowledge that my graphic design lecturer thinking I'm a cricket wiz is 100% false.
    Therefore, please accept '42' as my answer for all of the above.

    Bradman must have averaged 42 at one point.

    SA have 42 captains, and Jeetan Patel plays on level 42. It's a solid answer

    You see, Jeetan Patel's Test bowling average in New Zealand is roughly 42. So that answer points towards NZ, which means spanish.vicente was trolling you and knew the answer all along!

    I'm on to you!

    Jeetan Patel is love, Jeetan patel is life.
    Sticky Wicket Mid Off is a stupid question, stupid answer is correct.

    SA have infinity captains and Bradman averages 100.

    Why are people so bad at my quiz?

    So I surveyed a sample of other graphic designers with your questions to help put into perspective the knowledge I need to come off as a cricket fanatic (like none, in case it's still not clear)
    My mate answered confidently with the following answers:
    -5.
    -The UK.
    -**** ummm... *intense thinking* wait it's not a political q?? HIs name is clearly James.
    -Behind the wicket to the left
