Indian cricket legend Farokh Engineer is the next speaker in the Derbyshire Cricket Society lunchtime Winter Programme 2019/20 on Thursday 19 December 2019. 

As a wicketkeeper-batsman Farokh played 46 tests for India from 1959 to 1975 as well as playing county cricket for Lancashire.

His 94 before lunch in the 1966/67 Madras test against the West Indian attack of Hall, Griffiths, Sobers and Gibbs was the highlight of his career.

John Arlott said of Farokh Engineer, “I watched many of his performances for Lancashire from 1968 to 1976 and he had the ability to lighten up the gloomiest Manchester day, whether on the pitch or off it”.

Joining the Derbyshire Cricket Society for 2019/20 is only £5 and the most cost effective way to attend. This can be discussed when booking. Bookings must be made by Thursday 12 December at the latest.
