Oxymorons

This is a word I like, but until recently never really understood what it actually meant.

I have been advised an Oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms.

So was thinking of cricket related oxymorons. I'll start with one. 20/20 cricket.

Any more Oxymorons out there?

More of a political one than a cricket one, but it couuld certainly apply to MCC, ICCC etc over the years - honourable gentlemen.
