    Peter Forrest - Wow!!!

    Peter Forrest: 'In professional sport you don't make excuses' | Specials | Cricinfo Magazine | ESPN Cricinfo


    Didn't know the guy had to go through all this when he was 18!!! We praised Virat to the moon for playing on when he had lost his dad but this guy has done that too and then went on to lose his mom as well soon.. What an amazing story!!! Seems like a very likeable bloke too.. All the more power to him!! WAG!!!
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
