    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

    I saw it as quiff at first. I bet they got plenty of that in their careers. Most likely as a nick name though. Both were shortys.

    Special shout to the Headleys: grandpa George, papa Ron & sonny-boy Dean who (I think) are (so far) the only family to have three generations of direct descendents to play test cricket.

    The Huttons (Sir Leonard, Richard & Ben) came close, but the latter never made it to international honours and retired (prematurely, IMHO) a few years back.

    Other father/sons from top of my head:

    Jeff & Simon Jones
    Arnie & Ryan Sidebottom
    Jim Parks sr & jr
    David & Graham Lloyd (think the latter played ODIs for England)
    Alan & Mark Ealham (Ealham pere never made international honours tho, I believe)

    Oh, and the Cowdreys.

    Colin and Chris obviously both played for England.

    Colin's dad played First Class too and I think Chris' son has a chance of playing for Kent too.

    I'm pretty sure the Cairns' did play first class cricket together for ND at some stage, if not FC, then definitely the U-bix cup, which in the level below FC.

    Well, if we're delving into FC cricketers, Bob and Greg Blewett as well as Ian and James Brayshaw come to mind.

    Fabian Cowdrey. Fairly big wraps so far on the school circuit, will be interesting to see how he goes on.

    Pankaj Roy's son Pranab Roy and nephew Ambar Roy both played test cricket.

    I remember hearing from my dad that Pankaj became a National selector (or some BCCI big-shot?) and he selected both Pranab and Ambar neither of whom did really deserve the chance

    Alan and Mark Butcher - Butch jnr made his one-day debut for Surrey against a Glamorgan side captained by his dad. I expect the sledging went up a few notches.

    An interesting feature that reminds us that talent isn't always handed down:

    The Parks family also provided three generations who took the field for England - although the last was a substitute keeper.
