Archive for 'Cricket'

As Pakistan goes head to head with Sri Lanka in today’s T20 semi-final, I look back at some images I took for The National Newspaper of U.A.E.  I teamed up with Pakistani Journalist Abid Shah for this piece on “Diversity before wicket“.  This was not long after the National team had visited Lahore in 2009.  What I remember most about shooting for this piece was the utter joy and sense of being Cricket brought to everyone.  It was as though it was the blood which seeped through the veins of our Nation.  I really miss watching cricket.  I’ll be tuned to my Ipad.  God bless our Nation.
