England Stars take on cricket-themed challenges

Ahead of the Cricket World Cup, England’s cricketers undertook some unusual team bonding activities in preparation which included dressing up as a ‘sticky dog’ and making their best ‘fruit salad’.

Shot maker Jason Roy saw off stiff competition from captain Eoin Morgan and Jonny Bairstow to a seal a series win in the Urban Crictionary Challenge set by drinks brand Rubicon, the official soft drink partner of England cricket.


The Urban Crictionary is the home for the weird and wonderful terminology of cricket. Defining the game, one quirk at a time: https://www.rubiconcricket.co.uk/urbancrictionary

Urban Crictionaries:

Buffet Bowling – Mediocre bowling, to which the batsman can help himself in the manner of a self-service cafeteria.

Sticky Dog – A drying wicket that is exceedingly difficult to bat on. Uncommon if not non-existent in recent years due to the routine covering of pitches.

Fruit Salad – When a bowler delivers a different type of delivery each time, rather than bowling a constant speed, length and angle. Fruit salad bowling is used most commonly in Twenty20 to prevent batsmen from getting comfortable.
