Blast From the Past no. 38:

Not a great sports photograph, but possibly my most notable subject: the Prime Minister of Pakistan turning his arm over for Sussex at Horsham on 2nd June 1985 in a Sunday League fixture against Nottinghamshire. Looks like Chris Broad at the non-striker's end. Anybody recognise the other batsman and fielder?

Below is the original scanned transparency (unknown brand) converted to jpeg but otherwise straight out of the scanner. A bit of cropping and some artificial sharpening required (maybe too much).

A FaceBook friend informs me the fielder is Dermot Reeve and the batsman Clive Rice. Scorecard here for anyone interested...
