View Full Version : Top 5 T20 Franchise/Club Names

July 29, 2017, 09:09 AM
Come on, I know you can find five teams whose names you liked/disliked. ..or even amused about.

Mind you, this is an international cricket thread... do not go off topic.

My list:

1. Jamaica Tallawahs- most original name yet. It means someone who has a quality of strength. Their icon is an alligator.

2. Peshawar Zalmi- I got to see more of this team through Darren Sammy. It is another original name. In this case, I don't know what a Zalmi is/are

3. Cape Cobras- do I know if there are any cobras in the Cape? Not yet, but the name does roll nicely on the tongue to be catchy.

4. Khulna Royal Bengals- Royal Bengal Tiger? Roarrrrr

5. Guyana Amazon Warriors- have to include this one. Even though the Amazon rainforest is in our country, it is not too habitable... so the only warriors are the indigenous people who have been since ancient times.

Honorable mentions:
Mumbai Indians
Otago Volts
Antigua Hawksbill
Barbados Tridents
Barisal Burners
Kochi Tuskers Kerala
Kandurata Maroons

Does it have to be T20? Cause most of them are pretty generic and dull. But if I had to pick, it would be Nagenahira Nagas.

You can go on naming others than T20

OP meant franchise clearly? Can't see well? You've made your joke on the other thread, this thread opener asking an official franchise name not some fanatasy made up.

I hope your not from Barisal originally. There has been a bigot online from there saying stuffs about Sylhetis. Hope you ain't following this dude.

How is Zalmi so enthralling? It only means 'Youngster' Zalmi means Youngsters or Youths. and it suits Afridi the best as he is always a Youth never ages, zalmi/youngster at 17 forever :)

Duronto sound warrioresque feel to it. Should make a film with the title. LOL

Like I said, I don't know what a Zalmi is. It sounds good off the tongue, and is a well run organisation.

I think the owner's name is Afridi(not Shahid/Lala/BoomBoom).

Brisbane Heat, Perth Scorchers.

The Australian Outback had a huge influence on the names of these teams?

Also, there was a team called South Australian Redbacks... didn't know how long they were a T20 team for.
