Player nicknames

Post by brmtaylor.com admin »

Let's try and work out the nicknames for the squad, and where they don't exist, make up our own.
  1. Vusi Sibanda - Hollywood
    Brendan Taylor - ?????
    Justice Chibhabha - ?????
    Tatenda Taibu - Tibbly
    Hamilton Masakadza - ?????
    Stuart Matsikenyeri - Matsi?????
    Elton Chigumbura - Boom Boom
    Gary Brent - ?????
    Prosper Utseya - Dots, Professor
    Ray Price - Pricey?????
    Chris Mpofu - ?????
    Sean Williams - ?????
    Graeme Cremer - ?????
    Terry Duffin - ?????
    Tawanda Mupariwa - ?????
    Ryan Butterworth - ?????
    Tino Mawoyo - ?????
No idea if Brendan Taylor has a nickname or not already, but Taz would work if not.

Prosper is "Dots", as that what he mainly bowls. He's also been referred to as "The Professor", I think...

Taylor should call himself "captain caveman" because he really needs a haircut..

Dr. Situ came up with one for Price after his 10-5-7-0 today... Priceless


Taibu is also called "Taibs", but I'm thinking seeing Chigumbura is Boom Boom, maybe Taibu should have an alternative name due to his running between the wickets "Zoom Zoom"

Gotta come up with something for Masakadza and Chibhabha now...
