Pakistan v World XI
« on: September 12, 2017, 01:28:38 PM »

The first of three matches this week is starting at 3. It's on Prime TV/PTV Prime/something like that if anyone wants to watch it. Channel 792 or thereabouts on Sky.

Some decent players in the visiting side, Collingwood obviously the biggest name by far but there are some other guys like Amla and Morkel that one or two of you might have heard of.

It's eleven letters AND he has an MBE to tack on the end. The others can't compare unless Perera cheats by using all of his middle names.

Narangoda Liyanaarachchilage Thisara Chirantha Perera

I could literally have just mashed the keyboard for his second name there and none of you would have known.

Since you asked: Warnakulasuriya Patabendige Ushantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas

Even better if you see Bumble's story from when he was coaching England, something about Sri Lankan names in his accent crack me up.

EDIT: This Sri Lankan lad wins the longest/best name contest, Mahamarakkala Kurukulasooriya Patabendige Akila Dananjaya Perera

Fine, if we're doing full names then:

Paul David Collingwood Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire

Still the biggest name in the squad.

Bit of a farce if this series has international status. Players only risking their lives there to pick up the 100k cheque

True - but I wonder why someone like Faf, Amla and Morkel would risk it considering they have decent amount of cricket left and they can make $100,000 easily.

World XI wins this one, their bowlers contained Pak batsmen.
