Single Nelson.

The number 111 for some is magical. In South India, it is used to describe the Iyengar community who apply a symbol of a trident on their forehead.

In cricket it is called the single Nelson when a batsman is on the exact score of 111. There are many stories about this and you can do no better than read all about it in Wikipdia.

Again in cricket, scores of 222 and 333 are called double and triple Nelsons.

Why am I bugged about the Nelson number?


My first post on this blog was on June 8, 2008. I think that I have been quite prolific. What do you think?
