There used to be an opening batsman for Nottinghamshire whose name was Basharat Hassan. I recall watching him play at Chelmsford on one occasion but he retired hurt after John Lever hit him in the face with a lifting delivery. Poor BH was lifted bodily over the fence to the hospital next door where A & E staff took him away for a checkup. I think that must have been the same match in which I watched Garfield Sobers and Derek Randall playing.

I just found the said match on Cricinfo!

Not quite nominative determinism, perhaps locative determinism, but this thread's good enough: I went to have my hair cut and the radio (R2, one of two bad points about this place – the other being they've just put their prices up!) was broadcasting a barbershop choir. Female barbershop, but still pretty appropriate.

(I also had a bike conversation with the bloke who didn't cut my hair, just to make up for it.)
An ungovernable laughter, a joyous agitation which makes the summer stretching before you seem like an unrolling canvas on which you might draw those first rude pure strokes that are free. (Capote)

I have just noticed that South Africa have a cricketer named Philander. Oh where is Johnners and the endless opportunities for puerile tittering that this would have provided?

I have no idea whether he lives up to his name or not.
