His name is Cockbain.
Well that helps ! 😂

I know people with the surname Cock , it's always been a challenging name to pronounce. Just haven't seen the ck dropped, I've heard it turned into essentially Koch though. Just interesting to hear peoples take on it.

So you're saying Cock is hard to get your tongue around?

I gather going through school with that name leaves some legacy.

So I say it how people tell me they want it said.

Cockbain appears to have the benefit of being able to just drop the Ck.
That's the normal 'English' pronunciation. The ancestors of people like James Coburn and Kurt Cobain would have dropped the letters at some point in typical American fashion.

There was a Ms Sandercock as a teacher at my primary school, she was clear the ck was silent. Lol.

This is just unfathomable

Do these utter morons who voted no understand that they are in the entertainment industry? That cricket is fighting a battle with other sports and activities for the public's attention? That there are sometimes about 20 people turning up to BBL games this season?

Imho this is more shameful than sandpapergate

NZ cancelling their tour means that Steve Smith is unexpectedly available for the Big Bash

However he's not on the Sixers' player list given that he wasn't expected to be available.

The other franchises have voted to block him from being allowed to be added
