    Lamb's a Yarpie and Hick a Zimbabwean.

    Gunawardene the most amusing name in cricket for me.

    If only there was a Whitearatna to provide the antithesis of "Gunaward"ene.

    OK, referring to the name Silverwood is just sick minded.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Notice how the person doesnt post their surname.

    If its Canadian the chances are its derived from something French, which is pot calling kettle black
