    Haha that's so good. I love how it also says:

    "Also known as: I.L.Talebulamainavaleniveivakabulaimainakulalakeba lau", as though the first names are the ones that need abbreviation. Cricinfo obv taking the piss there.

    Is someone taking the Piss?

    Just searched Cricinfo and no Pissing at all.

    I believe there was a meeting of the England side with some dignitary in India, where the latter was very pleased to make the acquaintance of "Mr Iron Bottom"

    Tony Grieg once said that he wished he had a name like Nuwan Kulesakara. I had to agree.
