Specsavers Ashes 2019 Challenge – Episode 4


Let me show you the world of cricket. Do you know what I really like is cake So the best thing about cricket is after all of the day in the sun you get to come in and have a drink. Amazing! There you go. Thank you. What a friendly barman It’s Phil Tufnell! OK fellas, OK fellas, little bit of hush,
gather round. Now Adele has been on a bit of a cricketing
journey and she thinks she knows her stuff. So we’re going to put you to the test with
a cricketing quiz. If you get five questions right you will win
VIP tickets to the Specsavers Ashes Series. OK here we go, first question. Now this fella was very good. OK In the 1991 test at Lords against Sri Lanka, who took 5 for 94? Was it you Phil? It was! It was! Come on! That’s one. It was a very good side that Sri Lankan side, I can assure you. What is a sticky dog or a sticky wicket? Would you know what a sticky wicket is? If
it’s a sticky wicket? I sadly would not know what a sticky wicket
is. Oh, Bumble told me that earlier! That’s, er…it’s… when the pitch is wet or slow? Or the floor is kinda sticky in some way? I think we’ll give her that lads, won’t we? [Cheers]
Very good, that’s two. Can you name an England bowler, an England
batsman, and an England all rounder? Oh… They were England?
Yes Yes, I met them. So I met my mate Stu, he
was a bowler, Stuart Broad. Hi, I’m Adele Hi – Stuart Correct And then all rounder was Sam Curran Aargh! Correct And then my batter was Rory… what was his surname? Fire… or lighter… Burns? Are you guys any good? Oh, we’re tryers Rory Burns! That’s the right answer, very good. Next question. Which one of these is not a
bowling delivery? A yorker, a googly, or round the bend? I know that a yorker is… Correct I feel logically round the bend doesn’t make sense because how would you do that? So I’m gonna say round the bend. She’s right!
[Cheering] So you’ve got four right. For the chance to
win the tickets to the fifth test, can you name the venue where it will be held? Is it The Oval? It’s The Oval! Yes!
[Cheering] Well done, there are your VIP tickets. Who
are you going to be taking with you? This guy?
Oh I think I’ll take Stuart, he was nice. He’ll be playing.
Are you free Phil? I’ll be commentating.
Oh, you’ll be commentating. Maybe Bumble’s free? Probably… So are you excited? You get to go to The Ashes. Yeah, it’s pretty exciting. Although I’ll be honest, I did really want that cake though. Do you know what I really like? Cake. They’ll be winging their way in tomorrow. Well, Bumble asked me to give you this. Oh, no way… Did you make it yourself?
