Surajit Lahiri is the centre piece of this week’s truncated show (due to technical issues). Surajit is a top cricketer from Bengal and in this interview he talks us through how to become a professional cricketer in India.

He covers the structure of the game, what age is best to make it, how to balance work and study and what you need to do to move from tape ball/gully cricket into playing for India.

He also examines the attitudes you need to play cricket for a living; a theme that applies to any aspiring player needing advice.

The show will be back to normal next week, so get in touch with your feedback and questions.
