    Nick Name XI

    As it sounds name an XI using only nicknames:

    Rules nicknames can not be the person's name with a y on the end or an ie on the end. So Wrighty is out. Finally avoid finding any pages on the Internet that list out all Cricketers nicknames if you can.


    You can try to name either:
    1) A best possible XI
    2) A 1980s XI
    3) Your Country's eleven
    4) A pre war XI

    Or any other theme you can think of...

    My entry a NZ XI

    1) Rigor
    2) Pinga
    3) Skippy
    4) Hogan
    5) Paddy
    6) Macca
    7) Paddles
    8) 6 Pack (Dipak Patel)
    9) Wally (Warren Lees)
    10) Dave (Jeetan Patel)
    11) The NaeNae Express
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Incidentally, John Wright's main nick was 'Shake' as opposed to 'Wrighty' IIRC

    Wth? Tendulkar's main nick was 'The Little Master" wasn't it? The 'Master Blaster' belongs to Viv Richards

    You can do a pretty handy Australian XI from the last couple of decades without too much thought. Only keepers are really hard to come up with unless you go back to Bacchus.

    Tubby
    Pro (or Alfie, or Swampy)
    Punter
    Junior
    Tugger (c)
    Boof (or Pup, or Mr Cricket)
    Choc
    Dizzy
    Sarfraz (or Binga, or Pistol, or Casper, depending on conditions)
    Funky
    Pigeon

    Nah, get with the times.

    indian_legend got a lot wrong anyway. It's meant to be a nickname xi, not an epithets xi. 'master blaster', 'mr.cricket', 'the wall' etc do not count unless thats what their team-mates routinely refer to them as.
    Indian xi would be more like:

    viru
    gauti
    jammy
    sachin (i know, its sad)
    laxman
    yuvi
    mahi
    bhajji
    zak
    ishant
    appam chutiya

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!


    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    A random Pakistan XI featuring relatively recent players.

    Professor
    Toffee Kumar
    MoYo
    Aaloo
    Grandpa Tuk Tuk
    Boom Boom
    Dropmal
    IDone
    Princess
    Guldozer
    Druggie

    Wanted to put Younis in there but couldn't think of his nickname. Does anyone know if Younis has one? Grandpa is Misbah, IDone is Ajmal (kept saying IDone in his interviews so the name stuck) and princess is Wahab because that's what David Dyer (ex Pak Fitness guy) calls him.
