Rahul Dravid was called Jammy from his first season for K'taka. When Dravid debuted for K'taka Kumble, Srinath, Prasad were all youngsters too playing only their second season.
In the dressing room, Srinath on seeing a new young kid(RD was 17) asked him where his father worked. On being told it was at Kissan, he remarked "Jam-Juice factoryna?", and from there it was Jamjuice which dropped the "juice" part later on and became just Jammy.
