Viv Richards to play in India

NEW DELHI, APRIL 4. Cricketing legend Viv Richards is all set to make a swing at the ball yet again, but this time in a golf course in Gurgaon.

Richards would join a host of sportspersons and celebrities in taking part in the third Signature Celebrity Golf to be held at the Classic Golf resort, Gurgaon on April 23.

Besides Richards, the former West Indies captain who would be coming from Antigua for the event, Gundappa Vishwanath, Madan Lal, Pargat Singh, Milkha Singh and Farooq Abdullah were some other participants in the event, which would be held to raise funds for the Sunil Gavaskar founded Champs Foundation, which is supporting needy sportspersons.

"Viv plays a lot of golf. I have heard that whenever he meets Ian Botham, the two talk about golf a lot. He was a great cricketer. I hope he would continue it on the golf course as well,'' Gavaskar, founder and trustee of the foundation, told reporters here. — PTI
