Mahela Jayawardena molted out of his ‘non-T20’ skin in one of his last few matches in IPL 2010, a bit too late, some might add. But what he did manage to do is to create a new identity for himself right up the order as a dashing opener in the latest format. This prompted us at DreamCricket to take a closer look at his literal identity, his name. Though referred to commonly as “Mahela Jayawardena”, his name is often written as DPMD Jayawardena, which is short for Denagamage Proboth Mahela de Silva Jayawardena. His long-time team mate in his national side and more recently turned foe, Vaas was known quite well for the length of his identity.
So why not, for our 7th over, turn our collective attention to players who are better known to us by certain names but whose real names are often longer or ... just plain different.
Thanks to Google search, we have to be a bit cheekier than we’d like to be. So we are going to give you visual clues – puzzles, if you will – that you have to first crack to get the names and then using those names you can fill in the more famous parts of these cricket-related personalities.
Here is an example of these visual clues:
_ _ _
Each horizontal row of clues would correspond to one name of the subject of that particular question (or puzzle). In the above example, the 1st row of images corresponds to Kapil and the 2nd row of dashes to Dev.
