Ryan Sidebottoms locks earn him Sexual Chocolate nickname!May 8th, 2008 - 3:10 pm ICT by admin
London, May 8 (ANI): Ryan Sidebottoms glorious return to Test cricket is now sporting folklore, but few would know that he is also known as Sexual Chocolate.
The England paceman one of Wisdens Cricketers of the Year for his storming efforts against the West Indies and New Zealand was given his nickname at Yorkshire.
Im also called Sid, which is just short for Sidebottom, but the Sexual Chocolate name was given to me by Craig White at Yorkshire. The band in the Eddie Murphy film Coming to America was called Sexual Chocolate, and Craig reckoned one of them had my hair, The Sun quoted Sidebottom, as saying.
He has emerged as Englands No 1 quick bowler with 50 Test wickets, helped by a hattrick in the series triumph in New Zealand.
But he is happy to shun the limelight. (ANI)
