Hi followers (if any), I have found a bit of time to post a few recent photos. These were at the WACA in Peth on Monday Evening 16/12/13, just before Australia secured The Ashes. I am truly thankful for the time these guys had to pose for these photos. Being hounded by the media everyday must be a pain, and then there are fans, like me, hanging around to pounce for that elusive photo. So thank you guys for your time and patience whilst adjusting the camera for that one chance photo. Celebrities in this selection of photos are as follows: Andrew Strauss, Billy Bowden, Damien Fleming, David 'Bumble' Lloyd, Glen McGrath, Gary Matthews, A Selfie with Henry Blofeld, James Brayshaw, Jonathan Agnew, Michael Atherton, Michael Slater, Michael Vaughan, Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Shane Warne, Sir Geoffrey Boycott (if he isn't a Sir, he should be), Sir Ian Botham and Stuart Broard
Henry Blofeld really couldn't be any more different than his brother Ernst Stavro.

As the curtain comes rolling down on an illustrious career spanning more than a generation , i was just reflecting on the sort of impact Sachin Tendulkar made to the common man and how he touched upon many of our lives. Just chronicling some of the moments and memories which had a lasting impact on me.   My earliest memory of him was during the Hero cup semi in Nov 1993 when he came on to bowl the last over with 6 needed to win for South Africa .. Family and friends had got together and i vaguely remember my mom asking me to Kann Moodify with the tension building and it was a euphoric moment when he pulled it off and on the background was an ecstatic Henry Blofeld commentating and scenes of an Eden Gardens crowd going into absolute raptures.Those days Eden was a fortress and the number would have touched 100,000. Then came the final and though it was a match dominated by the wily old fox Kumble who got magical figures of 6/12 , it was Sachin's cameo at the end which took India to a respectable target of ...

He, CMJ (Christopher Martin Jenkins) saw cricket not through the cynical and often claustrophobic prism of the ex-pro, but rather from the wider and much more nutritious perspective of civil society.

The death of Christopehter Martin Jenkins is a huger loss to all those who loved radio commentary. Martin-Jenkins was a part of that famous BBC Test Match Special team along with Brain Johnston, Don Mosey, Henry Blofeld and experts Trevor Bailey and Tony Lewis. CMJ had a beautiful voice and he was a commentator of Wordsworthian delight. The nature always found a mention in his descriptions; bright sunshine, lovely breeze, lengthening shadows, huge cloud cover over Lords or clear blue skies at the Oval. As a kid, the BBC Test match team was a part of my life and also a part of my learning process. Every summer 3.30 pm to 10.30-11 p.m. (IST) was reserved for all Test matches in England.
