Celebrity cricket team sets off for India

Celebrity cricket team sets off for India

A celebrity cricket team - comprising such luminaries as Phil Tufnell, Jack Russell and Harry Judd, the drummer from the pop group, McFly - has set off for India to take on the stars of Bollywood and raise money for Sport Relief.

The Red Socks team will be captained by Tufnell and managed by the former West Indian cricketer, Alvin Kallicharran. In addition to their match at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, they will be visiting Chennai and Cuddalore. The trip is being filmed by the BBC, and will be shown on British television at the end of May.

In 2004, Sport Relief raised £16.5m, and the team members will be able to witness at first hand how the money is being spent. This year's event will take place on July 15.
