The King & I ….

Been a while since posted any pictures on the site.
So here goes …

Its December, 1981. England are touring India.
And this is from the England team fancy dress party for Christmas.

Geoffrey Boycott (apparently) appears as Ranjitsinghji. (Altho I seem to remember that its the uniform that the durbaan at one of Delhi’s bigger hotels wear).
Ian Botham’s “dressed” as Boycott himself.

Photographer unknown.
