You would have heard of this Sri Lankan player with 6 initials:
and his compatriots with 5 initials:
In fact, two or more of them have played together in Tests and ODIs several times.
Other countries have not been able to come up with anyone with more than 4 initials. You may think they are mainly from India, but the 4-initial group includes representatives from the West Indies (SFAF Bacchus, EDAS McMorris), England (JWHT* Douglas), India (GAHM Parkar), South Africa (NHCD Theunissen) and Australia (HSTL Hendry) besides a long list of Sri Lankans. Pakistan has a few hyphenated triples such as Misbah-ul-Haq while Bangladesh has an one-word name (Mahmudullah).

But they all pale into insignificance before this first-class cricketer with 10 initials:
As he is apparently referred to as Rajitha Amunuguna, Indians may think this is a female name.
Here is the scorecard of his last first-class match:
in which his opposing team included WADAP Perera and MMDNRG Perera.
Meanwhile, there is competition from Fiji:
IL Bula, who is apparently still living, has the longest surname among any recognized first-class cricketer. He did score two centuries.
You can count the number of letters in his surname, but they are clearly far more than the Test record-holder Sivaramakrishnan (16 letters) and his hyphenated friend Bromley-Davenport. With 15 letters we have Kuruppuarachchi, Venkataraghavan and Wijegunawardene. At the other end of the scale there are a few Alis beside Gay, Law and Su’a.
