It should be a fun evening, with the opportunity to pick up a couple of fantastic mementos that Farokh is bringing with him, for example:
- Two signed Cricket Bats with signatures of TENDULKAR; DHONI; FLINTOFF; VIRAT KOHLI; OTHER ENGLISH STARS
- Wicket Keeping glove signed by ALL TIME WICKETKEEPING GREATS WHO ARE ALIVE FROM ALL TEST PLAYING COUNTRIES (Dujon, Gilly, Alan Knott, Rod March etc)
- Cricket Shirt signed by FREDDY FLINTOFF;SACHIN TENDULKAR & OTHERS
- Two miniature Cricket Bats signed by World Cricketing Stars.
- Plus, hopefully a signed Manchester United Shirt.
In addition to these fantastic items, there will be the normal Aussie cricket and sporting paraphernalia.
It has a good cause because any excess proceeds go to supporting the development of Indonesian youth in the great game of cricket. In fact, a young Indonesian lad is just about to jet off to South Africa to play. Tremendous progress has been made to introduce and nurture some very good talent.
The all inclusive cost is for food and beer and entertainment. At the last dinner, some of you will recall that we had a terrific magician with us; well, Josh the Magician is joining us again. So should be a very fun night.
