Whenever I hear the song
">Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners
I usaully think of it as a fake version of
">Come on England by 442
which was a song released for Euro 2004, even though Come on Eileen came first. The next thing you will probably say is something like
">Three Lions
is a cover version of some 1980s track, which would be a shame.

Let's hope that Dexy - or whichever nickname Neil Dexter ends up being given - can reach 442 first-class runs for the Three Seaxes by the Twenty20 break (so that he is on course for 1,000 runs for the season) and get the attention of the people at cricket's equivelent of the Three Lions!

Sorry for my eccentricity.

Eccentricity is nothing to be sorry about Winsky Minor.
It is positively encouraged in this place.The more of it the better.

Long John Silverwood. That wooden leg doesn't help his fitness.

Might I also question the appropriateness of naming a promising young batsman (Billy the Kid) after a psychopathic american killer?

As stated earlier, surely The sailor is the only nickname for Malan?

While this comes to top should mention Finn as "Hi-Fi" as invented by Kimmy after Ragdoll character. If you saw him in Scotland with giant headphones you'd understand.

I'd been wondering who 'Hi-Fi' was.

In July 2009 Wisden Cricketer magazine, to the question 'Do you have any nicknames?', Silverwood answered "Spoons or Silvers". I am sure I have heard some of the players shout, "Well fielded Spoons".

I like Popeye as nickname. I can hear the chants now from the Upper Compo. " Where's your spinach gone?"

In the England dressing room, it appears that Steven Finn has been given the nickname of 'Avatar' due to his height while he has told a few newspapers and magazines that for similar reasons his uncle called him 'X-ray boy'.

According the Guardian, Tom Smith's nickname when he was at Sussex was "The Seaford Plumber".

Please don't ask me what the film Avatar is about as I am more into films such as Bend It Like Beckham, Goal! and Sixty Six.

According to the Hounslow Chronicle, Wembley Observer, Ealing Gazette, Uxbridge Gazette, Staines News, Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle and Surrey Herald Adam Gilchrist's nickname is Church as during the Gloucestershire v Australia match in 1997 an autograph hunter called him Adam Gilchurch.

He also implies that he wishes to play at Richmond when Middlesex play Glamorgan there in the Twenty20 Cup on 15th June, which would be brilliant if it is true.

It appears that this article (or least MTWD) has been read in India, as an article on expressindia.com mentions that Murali Kartik was known as 'The Special One' when he played for Middlesex, even though I can't recall hearing him referred as that outside MTWD.
