1) DIPAK ‘CHUDA’SAMA
This qualified orthodontist was part of the Kenyan team that upset the West Indies in the 1996 World Cup. Wonder what his nickname was!
2) NAPOLEON EINSTEIN
Sounds like some sort of fusion isn’t it? These two legends came together to make one World Cup winning star. Confused? Napoleon Einstein was part of the famous Under 19 World Cup winning team led by Virat Kohli in Malaysia back in 2008.
3) SALMAN “BUTT”
Now there you go with that smile! Not quite obvious “butt” we think we just stated the obvious. Didn’t we?
4) WARNAKOOLASURIYA PATABADIGE USANTHA JOSEPH CHAMINDA VAAS
Whoof!! That took some time and effort didn’t it? You all must have heard about the legendary Sri Lankan bowler Chaminda Vaas. But, let’s us how many you will be able to remember his full name. Warnakoolasuriya Patabadige Usantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas!
5) SIKANDAR RAZA “BUTT “
He has done one better than his fellow countryman Salman. Sounding more like a Bollywood badman, there is more to Mr. Raza: He plays for Zimbabwe! Yes, he is in the squad to represent the minnows in the coming World Cup.
6) DICK YOUNG
Probably Dick is not too young considering he played his last test match for England in 1908. Another interesting fact about young Dick is that he has a connection with India: He was born in Dharwad in the state of Karnataka in 1885.
7) VA INDULKAR
Sachin Tendulkar’s cousin. No we’re joking! VA Indulkar just like Sachin Tendulkar plays for Mumbai. Tempting to think how many times his name was mispelt or people asked, “Kaun. Tendulkar?”
