Sluggo Leverock
It's just as well no health food company is sponsoring the Cricket World Cup. Or is Bermuda spin bowler Dwayne Leverock on an endorsement deal with Red Stripe?

"Sluggo" Leverock, who surely is the biggest man in international cricket since Warwick "The Big Ship" Armstrong, was Bermuda's best bowler in Monday's World Cup warmup against England, taking 2/32 from ten overs. But with all squad members getting a game, he didn't bat in the mighty Bermudan innings of 45 all out in reply to England's 286 for 8.

Leverock sounds like a character from the Flintstones, but he does have one outstanding record to his name - he took 7/57 on first-class debut for Bermuda against the USA in the 2004 Intercontinental Cup.
