A cricketing game of "Would you rather..."

Simple game this, best played with a good mate when you have time to kill. During rain delays, during a DRS referral or when the Pokemon Go servers go down.

All you have to do is pick one of the two options, and explain your decision.

Let’s get into it!

1: Would you rather be the son of Ravi Shastri, or the son of Danny Morrison?
2: Would you rather win an IPL final as a player or a World T20 final as a player?
3: Would you rather be a T20 hero for 10 years, or a Test match legend for 10 years?
4: Would you rather have Shahid Afridi’s hair, or Kumar Sangakkara’s hair?
5: Would you rather score a Test century at Lord’s, or be as great as Kevin Pietersen is at everything for 1 day?
6: Would you rather see Imran Tahir play another 10 years of international cricket, or Glenn Maxwell play another 10 years of international cricket?
7: Would you rather be MANKAD’ed on 99 in an ODI, or have Shane Warne date your sister?
8: Would you rather have Farhaan Behardien or Glenn Maxwell bat for your life?
9: Would you have rather been in the Proteas’ #ProteaFire music video, or be seen in a Shane Warne sex tape?
10: Would you rather have Ian Botham’s dick pic tattooed on your arm, or have any of Kevin Pietersen’s tattoos?
11: Would you rather have Giles Clarke or N. Srinivasan as the best man at your wedding?
12: Would you rather watch an Imran Tahir wicket celebration on loop, or Dwayne Bravo doing the Champion dance on loop?
13: Would you rather have Jacques Kallis’ hair, or AB de Villiers’ hair?
14: Would you rather watch the Boxing Day Test live at the MCG, or the New Year’s Test live at Newlands?
15: Would you rather have watched the 438 game live, or watched David Warner slap Joe Root that time in the bar?
16: Would you rather have Geoffrey Boycott as your lawyer, or Michael Holding?
17: Would you rather be friends with Piers Morgan or Vladimir Putin?
18: Would you rather get paid $1,000 a day to play a 5 Test series in Sri Lanka, or $10,000 a day to play a 5 Test series in Bangladesh?
19: Would you rather have Morne Morkel or Ben Stokes bowl a T20 death over for you?
20: Would you rather be Sachin Tendulkar, or just be as rich as him?

What I would choose:

1: Ravi Shastri – at least then there would be one country I wouldn’t be too embarrassed to live in.
2: WT20 final. I’m South African, I will take any ICC trophy I can get!
3: T20 hero. More money, more time playing golf, and a bigger audience to sell a shitty book to when I’m done.
4: Shahid Afridi’s hair! Because you just know it will never go away!
5: Obviously be as great as KP. Who wouldn’t want to be a superhero for a day?
6: Imran Tahir. Eventually a pitch invader will tackle him after taking a wicket.
7: I’ll take the MANKAD any day. Momentary disappointment always trumps the permanent alternative.
8: #BehardienTime
9: The Shane Warne sex tape. People will eventually forget about that, unlike the #ProteaFire music video.
10: Ian Botham’s dick pic. Some may consider it art, and it really wasn’t that big.
11: Srinivasan. He probably wouldn’t be bothered enough to pitch, whereas old Giles would probably hit on your wife.
12: Dwayne Bravo, and I would make it tolerable by adding Freddy Flintoff laughing at him over it.
13: Kallis. He got a top class rugby that looks like it will last.
14: Newlands. Way more attractive women and you can drink beer whenever you like rather than when you are allowed to.
15: Warner slapping Root, obviously.
16: Boycott, because he would annoy any judge or jury into the verdict he wanted.
17: Putin. He seems a lot less needy on social media.
18: Sri Lanka any day for less.
19: I would concede the loss.
20: His money. Must be terrible to be adored by a billion people, pretty much none of whom you would want to have sex with.
