How would a Dalek play Cricket?

Imagine if the Dalek Empire was so "afraid" of losing again to the 5th Doctor, that they offered a wager on the result of a 5 day cricket match... The winner of which would take the contested planet they're "fighting" over.

Cricket Dalek - a Dalek with a Cricket bat attached instead of the traditional plunger.

Re: How would a Dalek play Cricket?

Well, I can't imagine a Dalek parting with its gun, even one playing cricket. Plungers are already optional, Parting of the Ways featured one with a claw instead of a plunger. Therefore, the plunger seems more likely to go in favor of the bat.

Re: How would a Dalek play Cricket?

I'm imagining some sort of pulley system to allow the the bat to exact the correct sweeping action.

Also, the Daleks might e allowed to chose substitutes?

Ogrons or Robomen?

If the Daleks played without their travel system, the pitch might be submerged in 3 feet of pond water.

If they did play in their travel system... Would the Daleks be allowed to fly?

Well, presumably you'd change it out. The plunger for fielding, the bat for hitting.

Re: How would a Dalek play Cricket?

Dalek's wouldn't play cricket due to being concieved by an inferior race, but hypothetically if they did play wouldn't they just exterminate the opposition. Unless the opposing team used cricket balls filled with Nitro-9.

They'd play very badly, I imagine.

Well the modern era Gold Daleks can at least swing their midsection. They'd be better at Cricket than Rugby.

Re: How would a Dalek play Cricket?

Daleks would be very good at fielding, due to those extendible plungers with gravity manipulators built on, but out first ball when batting - skirt before wicket.

I'm sure when The Doctor tries to explain the Duckworth-Lewis Method the Daleks will get caught in some sort of error sub-routine forever.

No chance of the bowler hitting the wicket at all. The Fat Bastards. I mean the Daleks of course.

Not convinced they would be good at fielding either. The Fat Bastards.

I assume this is a Humans versus Dalek match of course. If it's Dalek versus Dalek, I believe both would exterminate each other after the first ball is bowled.

How do you now that Daleks didn't invent cricket and taught it to he English?

Their body armour has 40 cricket balls attached to it.

Re: How would a Dalek play Cricket?

^My answer would be,

Humans are not Dalek's and therfore an inferior lifeform and as such they need to be exterminated. Not taught how to play a game that the Kaleds used to play.
