After quite some time, I am posting one of the more ‘intelligent’ connects. It is easier than it appears at first.
PS: The lady in the first photograph is only a recent addition to the list.
Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
Three answers, and two correct. But the question has not been fully cracked.
Yes, all four people shown here have spawned cricketing terms from their name!
A is Michelle Pfeiffer, the actress. A recent addition to cricketing terms is Michelle, used to denote a five-wicket haul by a bowler. Apparently, the surname ‘Pfeiffer’ sounds too much like ‘five for’, as in ‘five for 32’ or ‘five for 12’.
B is Ellis Achong, a part Chinese cricketer. He pioneered a certain style of bowling, that came to be known as ‘Chinaman’ bowling after him.
C is Lord Nelson, who lost an eye, an arm and a leg in the Battle of Trafalgar, and subsequently died from the injuries. The score of 111 is named Nelson’s score in his memory and honour.
D is Vinoo Mankad. We all know the style of ‘Mankad’-ing a batsman, or running him out when he is out of the crease at the non-striker’s end before a delivery is bowled.
