    When Australia racked up 438 at Edgbaston in 2009 before bowling England out for 78 and 145.

    * Kerry O'Keefe's commentary, think it was in Adelaide in 2007.. Wondering why England players were all given nicknames with a "Y" after their names, and what would happen if the Aussies had nicknames like that. Pontingy Lehmanny, sent Agnew into hysterics like during Botham's leg over incident.. Was very funny at 4 in the morning..

    Aussie cricketers fail badly at nicknames.

    Marsh = Swampy
    Boon = Boonie
    Allan Border = AB
    Taylor = Tails (or Tubby)
    Gillespie = Dizzy
    Martyn = Marto
    Slater = Slats
    Every single one of the Sincocks who've played for Aus state sides = evil dick

    That was why Michael "Mick" Vaughan and Kevin "KP" Pietersen were such a breath of wonderful fresh-air.

    Nicknames tend to be woefully obvious TBH, almost regardless of country. Fortunately I don't really have one at my club, one of the relatively few who's just known purely by name. Makes a change when I'm bowling with just "bowled Rich!"

    I'm universally known as "Dickie(\Dicky)" in college circles, but have always been Rich everywhere else.

    "Dick" is a name not in vogue at all at the current time, more used for people who were born ~1930.

    Appreciate it's exciting for you, but that's too much info, surely?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
