    No, you don't need to take out any of the characters. These are the only characters/sounds Japanese language has that would come close to spelling/pronouncing "Tendulkar". There are no L sounds in Japanese, nor are there are sounds that end in R.

    Actually the last one probably could come off. Apologies.

    The second to last one is just to elongate the aaa sound.

    More accurately, there is no phonemic distinction between L and R in Japanese, and Japanese words always end in vowels.
    So "Tendulkar" is Tendorukaru.

    Well heres the thing. If you have never heard of the name "Tendulkar"......probably the most famous name to have ever played the game of cricket, then it is my opinion that you are in no position at all to be recommending "proposed changes to cricket"

    But then again, apparently ten dollar carl himself endorses this particular idea

    So I wouldn't be able to go onto curlingweb.net/forum and suggest some changes to make the sport more appealing to me because I hadn't heard of the curling equivalent of ten dollar carl? #Teamloko

    No. Well I mean you can.....but would you really want to be the curlingweb.net/forum equivelant of Loko??

    Surely before you assume to fix something you'd first need to understand what was wrong with it??

    How much interest or understanding of cricket can someone have that doesn't know of Ten Dollar Carl??

    PS.

    If you do venture onto the curling forum to suggest some changes, can you ask them why the **** they play the game on ice?? Surely it would appeal to a greater number of people if it were played on grass or sand?? I mean how many people in the world have access to areas of ice???

    Surely cricket would benefit from some of the changes listed in this thread though

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I agree that cricket would benefit if Tendulkar was called Ten Dollar Carl..........ICC should make it happen.

    That can be my second question/thread. My first one will be asking if there has ever been an instance of a team throwing 4 curling stones in a row intentionally poorly in a match before. 3rd question will be requesting the Norwegian team outfit sent to Australia
