1] Eoin Morgan: Elango Murugan, A Tamilian settled in Bangalore.

2] Shane Warne: Shaym Warnan, A Malayalee who grew up in Jaipur

3] Andrew Symonds: Anand Rao Saimanth an Andhra Brahmin from Vizag playing for Deccan Chargers.

4] Dirk Nannes: Dhiraj Nene, distant relative of Madhuri's husband living in Indian Capital.

5] Charles Langeveldt: Charan Singh Longewal, not related to old Longowal. A migrant Sardarji from Midnapore district in WB.

6] Dwayn Bravo: Devan Bhairav a Mallu - Maharashtrian cross product from Nagpur

Som,
Original is original...
Whatever inspired is just that, inspired! May be I like remakes because I am better inspired than some people but I am not always original.
You still keep all the credit because you hit upon the idea first. I just loved the idea and took off from there.
You seem to beat a lot of people to the post with ideas :-)

Som said...

Anony, can't agree more:)

Som said...

Trideep, glad you liked it:)

Som said...

Govind jokes apart, yours was splendid. I renew my offer to collaborate for a IPL Domiciles Dictionary:)

Govind Raj said...

Honored :-)

Govind Raj said...

Som,

This is my tribute to Fake IPL Player on my own blog. Do try and let me know how I fare in remaking...

Now "Hegde" in Chennai??? OMG

I being one of them, haven't heard any related to Chennai, but anyways nice post bro!

Som said...

Govind, I'm not the lethargic sloth you perceive me as. Checked your stuff, absolutely hilarious, bit found commenting difficult. Why don't you allow anyone to comment? The Name/URL things works fine with me. or even anonymous. Not many ppl love logging through gmail acccount and all that. GIve it a thought sir.
But again, it was top notch:)

Som said...

Sujan, know thy neighbour :) BTW, thanks again:)

Wonderful.
Only Shilpa shetty announced in apress conference, that her captains original name was Shayan Baran.
Shane Bond is one of the co-founders of Ray and Bandopadhyay Co. that manufactures Ray-Ban goggles.
Dumini may be a bit unwilling to accept the so nearly abusive surname!
...and don't forget Mumbai Indian's athletic coach Jhontu Roy-Das.

Som said...

KD, I always felt Warne Sen, Bond Sen, Watson Sen...all are estranged Bongs.

Dingo said...

In response to your article Som; I would suggest-

Irfan Pathan - Ian Parkinson; Tradesmanlike yet strong

Sourav Ganguly - Sampson Ganguliford-Armstrong-Waterson-Smythe; Regal & establishment

Virrender Sehwag - Vince Sehwagelidis; Brash, European background, gold chains, hairy chest and tight pants

&

Russell Arnold - Russell Arnold

Som said...

Dingo, especially liked the Russell Arnold bit:)

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste
your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
enlightening to read?
