I saw something raja would have loved

Postby Boycs » Tue May 03, 2016 7:28 pm

In an antique shop for £365. A display of five miniature cricket bats, each signed by the entire touring team of various tours of England. One bat for each team. From memory it was New Zealand, India, South Africa, Pakistan and West Indies. All tours from the 30s, 40s and the WI one was from the 50s and I spied Frank worrells signature

Then they had individual bats for £65 each and one had a 50s Pakistan team, I saw fazal Mahmoud and hanif Mohammad

You will never find such a shop in India.
In India, people will ask...Frank Worrell, who?
Heck, they may even ask...Vijay Hazare, who?
