We urgently need something decent for a few players named above. Also, we have absolutely nothing for Dawid Malan, Adam london, Shaun Levy and/or Kabir Toor, all of whom might conceivably get an outing this year.

Are there terms other than nicknames that we use with reckless abandon on MTWD that could do with explaining in the glossary? Post your ideas on this thread please.

Adam London is ''GEYSER'' from Cockney geyser.
Shaun Levy is ''BLING''due to his sparkly earings.

Tyrone Henderson aka 'The Blacksmith'.Origin dubious but has been suggested that he had an unfortunate incident with a brood mare or he has more shoes than Imelda Marcos.I would like to believe the latter but strangely enough the former sounds more probable.

Our Billy could be called God or G-d to our religous jews

Wasn't Nannes nicknamed the " Cyclone" or is this now considered bad taste given certain international disaters?

I would to glossary alternative names for 20/20 cricket

Thank you for this!

Perhaps you could highlight this item in the left hand navigation for new members to refer to!

You forgot H&G for the 20/20's Kev , hit and giggle.

Or in the case of David watching Essex at the Oval this evening , bowlers hit I giggle.Sorrys top three made three runs between them , nicely distributed ,one each .

A few others to consider.

Some people have referred to Compton as "Compost."

Scott referred to by Turkeys as "Super Bat"- this when he was promoted and failed at 6, after failures at 7+8 ( present form may or may not invalidate this )

Richo- " Big Al"

Malan- "Where's your middle V", or "AC" or "Inter"

Henderson- "Hendo" or more appropriately "Typhoon"

London- "Streets of"

According to the Cricketer's who's who Joycey is also known as 'Spud' and 'Piece'.

How about 'James' (after James Joyce)

Update posted and thanks for all the suggestions. Keep thos esuggestions coming but I think we are starting to hit the size limit for a single feature, so we might have to apply some triage to the ideas.

Could Irish Ed's nickname 'Piece' have a very convoluted derivation from Peace and Joy?As in Peacie and Joycie(sic).BTW I think I'm going down with something......

Dawid is indeed A.C.after the Italian soccer team of a similar,name but his brother on the MCC YC staff is INTER.
Some alternatives are the more popular WOODY for Silverwood,LURCH for Finn and LORD for Strauss after Lord Brockett.
Henderson is THE BLACKSMITH due to his mighty hitting(I,ve yet to see him hit off the square)Godelmann sometimes just referred to as ''G''.
Murali known in India as ''THE TRICKSTER''
New boy Sam Robson is guess what ''ROBBO''and Dave Burton is off course ''MONTY''after the tailor.
I do have a glossary of NICK NAMES too for memberes of our much put upon committee members GED,details on request,or perhaps a little quiz I give you a nick-name and you identify them.

And then of course we move on to the posters and moderators with whom we are all most familiar just to start off with GED-who is naturally ''THE WEBMEISTER''

Re: MTWD Glossary
Janet Davis 12 June, 2008 20:20
How about a racing type nick-name for Silverwood due to his stables.

I can only think of 'Horse' at the moment

Given one of the other threads, perhaps Ed Joyce should be Ed>=50and<100? OK, not very catchy, except for mathematicians...

Can we assume he made a good fist of it?
