So I was browsing the names of the players in the IPL, when one name caught my eye:

Napoleon Einstein (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/india/content/player/279540.html)

Found it really funny, so I thought I'd share. Some of you may have heard of him already.

Any other weird or wonderful names in cricket?

He was in the Indian u-19 team that won the world cup recently, though he played only one match there.

Weird indeed.
May be his parents were big fan of those two gentlemen.

but when it comes to most funny/weird/politically incorrect names,
the award should go to the former Kenyan player

Dipak Chudasama.

I'm still trying to get over :

'Dollar Mahmud'

What were the parents thinking? Obviously the grandparents didn't have a say in the name selection

Real names heard in Dhaka: Dollar (spelled Dolar), Ruble (spelled Rubel), Dinar, Guinee, Euro (spelled Uro), Napoleon (AKA Nepo), and last but by no means least, Hitler (AKA Hitlu).

Why not Pound or 'Kuwait Dinar' ? They're supposed to be the most high in value! :)
