Shit lookalikes: Michael Vaughan & Professor Hugo Agogo from Batfink

Vaughanagogo One of them is a mastermind often let down by the ineptitude of his sidekicks, the other one is Professor Hugo Agogo from Batfink.

Men who sound like Graham Gooch

Grahampoll I know this is a bit off the thread, but there's mileage to be found in the Sound-a-likes. Today I was listening to the BBC's R5Live, as usual, and heard an interview with the football referee Graham Poll. It took a few minutes to get my ears and head around this, as I could have sworn it was Graham Gooch.

Is there something about being a Graham?

Shit Cricket Lookalikes - Chris Tremlett/Green Goblin

Many thanks to Googly fan Paul Tovey for sending this one to us.  Tremlett's superhuman performance in the first Indian innings suggests that perhaps he has taken the Norman Osborne route of swigging some serum to boost his powers. All we be reveled if Chris starts cackling maniacally in the field on the fifth day and/or flying about on a hoverboard and/or turning green.

Cricket Look-a-likes: Paul Collingwood

_39227032_bjorkmann_ap300x300 After a poor week for the England team, things only got worse yesterday for St Paul of Collingwood's long-lost brother, Jonas Bjorkman. There I was sitting quietly in the calm after yet another great Australian victory (Robbie McEwen blazing up the blind side to steal the first sprint of Le Tour in Canterbury - I just love those men in lycra!), and out of the corner of my eye, I swear I thought Paul was wielding a racket down in SW19. Shock! Then I realised it was another loser.

Not a good time for the strawberry-blonds. Jonas lost out to the least-famous Scotsman of tennis - that'd be Andy's brother Jamie then. And England swept to a magnificent defeat on Saturday to what is virtually a scratch team from the West Indies.

It's hard to see how England can pull themselves out of the mire to face India in the One-day game. Maybe Paul and Jonas should swop trades?

Cricket Look-a-likes: Larry Gomes

GomesSmokeyrobinson_3 Larry Gomes was the conservative, technically correct glue at No 3 that held together the liberal, artistic clobberers that surrounded him in the great Windies side of the early and mid-1980s.  As a result he is never spoken about with the same reverence as his willow wielding contemporaries.

Not a problem for his doppelganger though: Smokey Robinson is a genius.  End of.

Cricket look-a-likes: Adam Gilchrist

Gilchrist_face Matthew_perry Could these two be any more similar?

Adam Gilchrist is a man oozing confidence at the top of the order; the best wicketkeeper-batsman of the past 5 years; the nasal, annoying one in an all conquering, oppressive team. 

Matthew Perry played Chandler Bing; the best person to play the sarcastic, nasal, annoying one in an all conquering, oppressive sitcom.  [lee calvert]

They both however look like they should be on BBC2 at 3am doing an Open University maths lecture, or hanging around on train platforms writing down engine numbers.  [lee calvert]

Look-a-likes: Jacob Oram

OramBorrellJacob Oram is the 6'7" powerhouse of the New Zealand side, he has never been known to have fist-fights with his team-mates.  Similarly, Johnny Borrell is tall and the powerhouse of delay-guitar loving indie band Razorlight, alas him and his band-mates tend to knock seven bells out of each other on a regular basis, due to being wankers artistically conflicted.

Clive_lloydStevie_wonderCricketing genius meets musical genius.  The imperious former West Indies captain won two world cups and led the great Windies teams of the 1970s and early 80s before his retirement in 1986.   Stevie Wonder has won more Grammies than hot dinners, but he should have retired in 1979 because all of his musical output since has been utter shite.  'I Just Called to Say I Love You' anyone?  No, thought not..[lee calvert]

Vaughan_3 Matt_bellamy_2 Michael Vaughan will hope that he can put on a sterling performance in the World Cup in spite of his terrible knee-knack as he has much to prove to his one-day critics.   His ringer, Matt Bellamy of the band Muse, also has much to prove following their last album which seemed to be some vile hybrid of Josh Wink, Frank Zappa and Queen.

Following his magnificent 181, his team's loss and subsequent broken toe the other day, Matthew Hayden must be in a foul mood.  Maybe he could cheer himself up with some jazz flute playing, like his dead ringer's greatest alter-ego Ron Burgundy..
