    Brothers

    There are lots of brothers in the WC squads and it seems that there are always a lot of brothers in cricket

    more than any other sport at international level?

    Pakistan - Akmal
    NZ - McCullum
    WI - Bravo
    India - Pathan
    Ireland - O'Brien
    Kenya - Ngoche

    And if Albie Morkle had been selected then that would have been half the world cup squads playing with brothers

    It's understandable for Ireland and Kenya maybe because the required standard is not so high, but the others are all test playing nations

    It's hard to imagine any other sport with this many siblings in it. How many brothers played in the last football world cup?

    Anyone able to shed some light on why this may be?

    Funnily enough, all members of the Tasmanian first class squad are related.

    Netherlands would've had brothers playing - identical twins in fact - but one's been suspended for chucking and the other has a long-term injury.

    David and Mike Hussey would both be there, but for... Well I'm still not sure why not.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    If Elijah Otieno is any relation to Kennedy Otieno then he's probably related to the Obuyas too.
