14 March 2018 - Farokh Engineer, India and Lancashire


Meet a true cricketing legend when Farokh Engineer heads to Cottingham on 14 March. In his new book Farokh, The Cricketing Cavalier, Farokh looks back at many magical moments with Lancashire and India though the 1960s and 1970s. 'He had the ability to lighten up the gloomiest Manchester day, whether on the pitch or off it,' says biographer Colin Evans, former cricket writer for the Manchester Evening News. Nowadays, 40 years after his retirement from the game, he is still warmly welcomed all over the world as an ambassador for cricket.'
 
Signed copies of Farokh, The Cricketing Cavalier will be available.
 
Plus win a 'Legends of Cricket' autograph bat, signed by some of the game's biggest names and raffled to raise fund for charities supporting Mumbai street children.
