See quite a few of the Somerset boys around Taunton, and had some 1 on 1 coaching sessions with Mike Burns - very nice guy.

I've got autohraphs from a few, but that doesn't really count. Main example here is Nick Compton as he was a mate of mine at uni. He even played a few defensive shots against my leg spin in the nets, which was quite pleasing!

Met Wasim akram, Waqar Younis, Saeed anwar, Mushtaq Ahmed, Moin Khan

this was back in 1995 at the Lahore airport going to Sharjah. I got all autographs but lost them eventually.

Met Wasim Akram here 2011 again, he had a small coaching/tips session. He was much taller and had a stronger built than i thought otherwise...

I met Saurav Ganguly (my idol since a young age) in his final game in England a few years back, had a few words, got an autograph and shook his hand.

Also met Chaminda Vaas in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago shortly before he retired. he was training in Kandy and I was on holiday. Always smiling and watching up close a hard worker in the nets!
