Should do just fine on the upcoming Sri Lankan tour imo. Mendis could be a handful though.
My favourite namesake is this guy. Went to see them a few years ago even though I'm no Hendrix fan at all, was vaguely impressed. Went and spoke to him after the thing, he was like "yeah, people come up to me and say 'I'm a Rich Dickinson as well!' pretty often, we've got quite a common name". Ind33d, my man, ind33d.
Fuifui Moimoi in awesome names.
Mike Smith - name of several cricketers including 1960s England captain MJK.
Also an 80s TV and radio presenter, who may still be married to Blue Peter's Sarah Green. Seems to have gone to ground.
And if fictional characters are being allowed - and it seems that they are - Carl Hooper, as well as being an underachieving Windies batsman and skipper, was the presenter of 'That's Amazing!' on seminal 90s sketch show The Fast Show. May have just been a case of nicking the name though.
One more - Will Smith, sometime Fresh Prince and Man in Black and also Durham batsman (tipped as next year's captain)
Essex seamer Jahid Ahmed has an almost identical name to Exeter CC's Jahad Ahmed, pictured here 3rd from left back row:
One of my favourite shows that.
