39 years ago, a young cricket fan met the touring England Cricket team at a meet and greet in an Adelaide shopping centre, he was given a signed pair of 'keepers gloves by the reserve 'keeper, David Bairstow - who was Jonny's father. I didn't know, but Bairstow Snr took his own life when Jonny was only 8.

This morning, the fan and Jonny met up with an emotional Jonny being gifted the gloves.

Full story, and recording of the interview with the generous fan done during the cricket call, is here

what a lovely story. Thanks for that, GJ

It is official Kohli married to Anushka shama an Bollywood actress.
Surprised it was low key, but then again Kohli and anushka didn’t like the press surrounding them, they broke up in 2014 because the press basically said it was because of anushka that Kohli didn’t score runs in England.

An auspicious game then, but not one they have any hope of competing in.
