    Teams of players all sharing a name.

    Either first or last, though I originally thought this topic up as players sharing a last name as that would be more challenging (at least I presume). So the most obvious team first up:

    All Time 'Smith' Test XI

    Greame Smith
    (SA) - Captain
    Devon Smith (WI)
    Robin Smith (Eng)
    Steve Smith (Aus)
    Mike Smith (Eng)
    Collie Smith (WI)
    Dwayne Smith (WI)
    Ian Smith (NZ) - Keeper
    Peter Smith
    (Eng)
    Jim Smith (Eng)
    Mike Smith
    (Eng)

    Well if I had to back that side I'd hope it'd be on a spinning wicket! Dwayne Smith as first change seamer doesn't exactly strike me as threatening. Decentish batting line-up though. Fairly deep and two class batsmen in Greame and Robin.

    Can anyone construct a better team? I think that maybe a team of Singh's could be decent but other than that no idea.

    One XI with Mohammed as their first names and the other XI with Mohammed as their second?

    Lol. It'd make for an entertaining "Mohammed Cup" or "Mohammed tri-series"

    To go the whole hog, all umpires/match officials/commentators should also be Mohammad's.

    Would have to be played at a ground named Mohammad.

    (The only problem would be, shall we let the Mohammed's play?)

    Not a great depth in batting nor too many great bowlers but what to do ? These are the only eleven Browns (Browne) that have played test cricket.

    I know neither has played a test but Ali Brown and Dougie Brown might come into consideration too

    Have 11 sikhs played international cricket? You should be able to get a Singh XI if you did. I can think of a number of them of the top of my head:

    Robin Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Monty Panesar (Mudhsuden Singh), VRV Singh, Yuvraj Singh, RP Singh.... There must be some others, though the batting order looks a little weak!!
