INTERVIEW

THE JERSEY COLLECTOR: SALMAN RANA

I realized I loved cricket was in 2004 during the India tour of Pakistan. I remember watching an ODI from that series on a big screen outside my house with more than hundred people in my community sitting there and glued to the big screen as Shoaib Akhtar was bowling to Virender Sehwag. That series is what made me watch, play and talk about cricket every day. Ever since then, I have been an addict.

THE ARTIST: RAJA GOLDWIN SILVA

Those colourful jerseys and players of that time inspired me a lot. I used to read the weekly sports magazine ‘The Sportstar’ in my childhood days which boosted my interest on sports especially on cricket. I never thought that I would be able to connect art with cricket and it is a biggest surprise for me.

THE GUARDIAN: DARREN TALBOT

A happy face. Success is too often defined by winning. At the levels we work out, success is more people playing more cricket more often in teams and most importantly – really enjoying themselves and wanting to do it for many years to come whether they are in the UK or anywhere in the world.
