There is a coach called Gio Collussi I follow on LinkedIn and he posts some great videos, he has been working with Ben (the forgotten) Curran as well as some Pakistan players, definitely worth a look.

Yes, he was invited to a village at a academy in Pakistan where he was working with players.

Wasn't aware of him until his recent work.

I could watch Brian Charles Lara all day. The most talented batsman the world has ever seen.

Yes. For weeks they have been organizing a star studded bushfire fundraiser, as a curtain raiser for the BBL final tomorrow night.  Last I heard it had been cancelled due to the predicted wet weather, as they didn't want another game on a wet SCG outfield before the main game, and are now planning the match on 9th Feb.  Looking likely that the BBL GF will be a washout or barely a match.

Squad for the two teams includes :
Ricky Ponting , Adam Gilchrist , Alex Blackwell, Brad Haddin, Brett Lee, Brian Lara, Courtney Walsh, Dan Christian, Matthew Hayden, Luke Hodge, Justin Langer, Phoebe Litchfield, Andrew Symonds, Nick Riewoldt, Elyse Villani, Shane Watson, Yuvraj Singh and Wasim Akram.  Tendulkar is coaching one of the teams, but not playing, Tim Paine coaching the other team.  Warne and a few others were supposed to play, but now cannot because of the date change.

Specially made by Kook for the occasion.  Maybe not released to the public, but you could buy them if your pockets are deep enough!

@dingbatsports is likely the man who made them.
