Book signing fun at the Test

Doing a book signing with Farokh during the Edgbaston Test match recently was great fun.

People flocked around him and greeted him as a long lost friend. One man called Charles Ross joined the queue for Farokh to sign his book.

He told me an interesting story. "I don't suppose Farokh will remember me" he said. "It was 1970's and I went to the Indoor nets at Old Trafford in April while the Lancashire first-team were having pre-season nets.

I spent the afternoon fielding the ball and had a great time around the players. Because I had come a long way it was going to be difficult for me to get home that night and David Lloyd asked if anyone would put me up. Farokh volunteered and I spent the night at his house with him and his wife and young children. I still have the Indian Cricket Ball Farokh gave me as a souvenir."

When his turn came to meet Farokh he told his story and yes, Farokh did remember him staying and they embraced like long-lost buddies.
