A unique set of illustrations featuring cricketing legends went on display at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on the eve of the second One-Day International between England and India.
 
The limited edition prints are to be exhibited in the Shane Warne executive suite and feature greats Shane Warne, Sir Ian Botham, Sachin Tendulkar, Robin & Chris Smith and a large centrepiece of Hampshire legends.

The Hampshire legends include both Robin Smith and Warne as well as Andy Roberts, Malcolm Marshall, Gordon Greenidge, Barry Richards and Derek Shackleton.

The illustrations have been produced by Southampton born artist James Husbands.
 
James is thrilled to be exhibiting at The Rose Bowl and has been following Hampshire CCC his whole life;

"I started watching cricket at the old county ground many years ago and I am honoured to be showing my work at The Rose Bowl. It really is a magnificent venue and a beautiful Test arena."

James specialises in his very own brand of sporting illustrations, and his work is published in national newspapers and magazines.

He has also illustrated for hundreds of film, television and commercial projects, including Academy Award and Bafta winners.
