Julios and Nerds 

A 'Julio' is a player who takes great pride in his appearance, from fashion to hair styles, enjoys the fine luxuries in life, and is often found to be more extroverted and extravagant. Example: Usman Khawaja

A 'Nerd' is a player devoid of fashion sense, is softly spoken, likes the simple life and tends to be a fast bowler. Example: Josh Hazlewood
