    New entry: David Warner. He's either newest call up the the Australian squad or a respected English actor.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    And there was another "Jack" Russell in the England team in the 1920s, to boot. Neither was actually called Jack, the name was just a nickname (presumably because of the dog).

    The 1920s batsman was Charles Albert George Russell; the 1990s wicketkeeper was Robert Charles Russell.

    Thought I'd dig this up as James Cameron is taking time off from his busy schedule of making simplistic, obvious CGI-heavy epics to spend the summer with Worcestershire.

    Not really a namesake as such but this guy got me laughing proper as he surely has the most number of famous cricketers included in his names ever.

    I thought this might be the place to ask, does anyone know if the Paul Newman from the Daily Mail who featured on last Sunday's Cricket Writers on TV (as opposed to deceased Hollywood megastar) is the Derbyshire fast bowler from the 1980s?

    Another couple of recent entries:

    Tommy Cooper played for the Dutch in the world cup, but rather disappointingly left his fez at home.

    Meanwhile NRL fans might've noticed that David Gower is now splitting his world cup commentary duties with a stint in the injury-hit St George pack.

    Indian movie star Imran Khan



    and former Pakistan cricket captain Imran Khan......tbh the cricketer Imran Khan looked more of a movie star than the movie star Imran Khan



    btw I am not sure if this has been already mentioned in this thread.....sorry if it has been
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Swaranjit Singh was an all rounder who played for Southern Punjab and Warwickshire in the 1950's. He is better known as the man who bugged Gilchrist by pulling/hooking him in the 1958-59 tour of the West Indies to India. Gilchrist, inspite of being asked by his captain to refrain bowled beamers at the Punjab batsman and was sent home by captain Alexander which finally ended the career of one of the most terrifying fast bowlers the world has seen.

    I share my name with the victim of Gilchrist's wrath :-(

    Indeed. He's in the Dragons pack that also features Matt Prior. On the Dragons bench they have a Jon Green, not to be confused with West Indies John Green.

    Matthew Elliott is coaching at the Raiders too
