The mag­a­zine has grown in strength with wider cov­er­age

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Sport­star is a lovely mag­a­zine and dur­ing our play­ing days, it was the need of the hour. We needed a mag­a­zine that cel­e­brated cricket and sport in gen­eral and Sport­star did that very well. It was a weekly then and it cov­ered not just cricket but all other sport be it in In­dia or the rest of the world.

I have al­ways looked for­ward to the mag­a­zine and now it is a fort­nightly and has grown in strength with wider cov­er­age. I will never for­get the fact that when I re­tired from first­class cricket in the late 19■0s, Sport­star did a Cover on me. It had a pic­ture of me in colour, rais­ing my bat and there was a good fea­ture on me.

All sports­men have to say the fi­nal good­bye and I was no ex­cep­tion but what Sport­star did for me back then is some­thing I will never for­get for the rest of my life.
