Cricket fan volunteers
SHRIKANT IYENGAR will be one of the 147 volunteers pitching in to help at the WACA for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
The St James resident said he grew up watching and playing cricket in India and it was a passion for him.
“Being a Cricket World Cup volunteer will provide me with the perfect opportunity to be associated with the biggest event for cricket occurring only once every four years,” he said.
33-year-old Iyengar met the selection criteria which outlined that volunteers must be outstanding ambassadors for the host cities and ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 by upholding the values of excellence, integrity, teamwork, inclusion and adaptability.
Perth will play host to three games at the WACA ground:
■ India v United Arab Emirates, Saturday February 28
■ Australia v Afghanistan, Wednesday March 4
■ India v West Indies, Friday March 6
