There was more to the story about Wanstead (and Essex) cricketer Robin Das making his England debut at Lord’s last week. Robin is the first cricketer of Bangladeshi heritage to play for England – he tells BBC Essex here:
It means a lot personally – I feel like I have made some of my family not just here but also back in Bangladesh really proud… it’s a very good feeling. I hope that I’m definitely not the last and that there will be more to come.
"I hope there'll be more in the future from the Bangladeshi community."@EssexCricket's Robin Das became the first man of Bangladeshi heritage to represent England when he came on as twelfth man in the first Test v New Zealand.— BBC Essex Sport (@BBCEssexSport) June 10, 2022
