Admiral Nelson, yes the term used for the score 111 in cricket is nelson. It is believed that there was a person named nelson who had only one leg, one eye and one hand.The term is used in reference to the Admiral. Accordingly multiples of nelson are called Double Nelson, Triple Nelson and so on...

The number 111 is sometimes called "a Nelson" after Admiral Nelson, who allegedly only had "One Eye, One Arm, One Leg" near the end of his life. In cricket a score of 111 or multiples thereof (222 = "double nelson", 333 = "triple nelson" and so on) is considered unlucky.

Nelson is a piece of cricket slang terminology and superstition.

The name, applied to team or individual scores of 111 or multiples thereof (known as double nelson, triple nelson, etc.) is thought to refer to Lord Nelson's lost eye, arm and leg; however, notably Nelson actually had both of his legs intact, and the third missing body part is mythical
