A sports quiz featured one footballer, one cricketer and one rugby player each week. Over the six-week series the footballers featured were (in order) Gerrard, Lambert, Lampard, Rooney, Smalling and Welbeck. The cricketers were (in some order) Carberry, Compton, Robson, Shahzad, Stokes and Tredwell. The rugby players (in some order) were Cipriani, Launchbury, Parling, Robshaw, Trinder and Twelvetrees. Each week, for any two of the three names, there were just two different letters of the alphabet that occurred in both names (with the letters possibly occurring more than once).
List the cricketers in the order in which they appeared.
