“CRICKETERS PERSONIFIED” – by Des Kelly

Srilanka cricket

Once again, we are faced with coincidences that are almost impossible to imagine, this time, in the

Gentleman’s game of cricket. 

eLanka readers learn of many things as they peruse our regular newsletters, but this, folks, is something entirely different. 

          With the current season of Cricket, now in full force, my friend Maxie Gerreyn sent me this little piece, but the author is unknown and this seems to be a shame, because a lot of research would have had to be made, in order to come up with these amazing coincidences. A two-person similarity of “opposite names” taking part in a game, would have been surprising enough, but THIS is a “Caught & Bowled” situation involving 

THREE NAMES !!. Enough said, folks, 

just read and enjoy this. Blink your way through it, because I bet you will.
