Cricket Lookalikes

After another Saturday evening in the pub listening to my so called 'mates' ripping into me for looking like 'Luis Suarez with a mullet', I took to Twitter and asked our followers to name some cricketers and their doppelgängers. Who knows, Mitchell Johnson may have one that can actually bowl straight? So here goes, some of these are good, some are terrible...

Alistair Cook and actress Tamsin Greig... 
Only one of these will be getting a sweaty box this summer.

Ajantha Mendis and Nightcrawler

Middlesex all-rounder Gareth Berg and Freddie Flintoff

Jonathan Trott and actor Vince Vaughn

Graeme McDowell and ex Somerset bowler Steffan Jones

The Middle Stump's Dan and Jeremy Hunt

 Liam (minus the mullet) and Mr Suarez

Nathan Bracken and Hillary Swank

Robert Croft and Dan Petrescu

Steve James and Chris de Burgh...
 Graeme Fowler always sang 'Lady in red' to him whenever James went out to bat.

Jack Brooks and Susan Boyle

Finally, India's Virat Kohli and Danny fucking Dyer


  1. Sangakkara and that velociraptor off the first Jurassic Park film.

  2. Wow, the Mendis one is crazy!

    Good job mate.

  3. Happy that you agreed that Mendis does look a bit like Nightcrawler and I wasn't just being wildly offensive! I really hope Jack Brooks doesn't see this blog...!

  4. Ha. Jack is good friends of The Middle Stump. You can find an interview with him in our book Cricket Banter, out in April.

  5. The usual ones trotted out are Nasser and Mr Putin and punter and George Dubya Bush. An old one pre your time Liam is Andy Caddick and Tony "Tony Adams ooh ooh". Oh and half the Aussie side of the late 70s and early 80s and the tashtastic Liverpool team of the same era.
