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.
ENGLAND CRICKET STARS TAKE ON HILARIOUS CRICKET-THEMED CHALLENGES!

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.
