The Asian Cricket Awards at Lord's
7th October 2014

The Lord's cricket ground will be alive with activity this evening as it’s the Asian Cricket Awards. The event celebrates the contribution to the sport by British Asians.
 
We meet Saba Nasim, a 26 year old solicitor from Forest Gate who also happens to be a cricket coach, is nominated for an award at the ceremony for her contribution to grassroots cricket.
 
Taking up the sport at the age of 20, she started later in life but has made it her passion and wants to encourage more women to take up the sport. She say’s it is the one sport that your family will support you in because “it’s in our blood”. We went along to her training ground in Wanstead to find out why she thinks cricket is so popular among the British Asian community in London and how she feels to be nominated.
