I've had the privilege of seeing Bishan Singh Bedi bowl live. I've seen him tease and torment a batsman for 3 full overs before finally delivering the coup de grace.
Happy 75th birthday to my favourite Indian spinner!

Bishan Singh Bedi is the complete artist, having embraced the art and the medium (cricket) for life. It was good to see the Most Incurable Cricket Romantic I know being on top of his game, despite the challenges, as he marks his 75th birthday.

Cricket is an art. What else would it be when a certain Bishan Singh Bedi is one of its protagonists? I fell in love with the game when I saw him in action at the Ferozeshah Kotla. Bowler's work was such an easy exercise. No pain, no sweat. I wanted to be one 👇
