Mark Ramprakash, Surrey and England cricketer spoke to Cricket World on a rather cold and snowy morning in the UK as the England cricket team enjoy warmer weather in the Carribean. 

Mark is in his second year as an Ambassador for the British Asian Sports Awards and explained to us how he became involved and what the awards are designed to.

He has played over 400 first class matches and is close to 32,000 first class runs but appears to have no desire to retire yet.  We have seen him on Strictly Come Dancing and has just completed a particularly busy benefit year as well as the small matter of ticking off scoring a hundred hundreds.

He spoke about the plans for the future at Surrey CCC where he has just signed a new contract to take him to 2011.

I also asked him about the busy summer of cricket in England ahead – the World T20 and the Ashes, talking of which he jogged is memory to find his best Ashes and other memories.

The star-studded British Asian Sports Awards evening will be held at The Grosvenor Hotel, London on 21st February.  Further information and on-line voting is at www.basauk.tv
