Cricket Cockney Rhyming Slang XI

Let’s play a little game. Below I’ve listen 11 international cricketers without actually writing their real names. These players have all come together to make a pretty good world team. The difference is I’ve substituted their names with some made up phrases that semi-rhyme with their actual names. I’ve given a clue next to the phrase as to which country they play for, otherwise this could get a little bit TOO difficult, even for the top cricket buff! If you think you know any, please feel free to comment at the bottom. Some you’ll find pretty straight forward and others will really make you think! The key is not to cheat but googling international squads and having them listed in front of you. Do it from you head!

Remember though, this is just for fun, and you dont actually win anything. Well, maybe a fraction of my respect… #worthmorethanmoney
