Moeen Ali and others reveal what it takes to be Asian, Muslim and playing for England. As the Ashes starts, the “beard that’s feared” discusses being made a “poster boy” for Islam. Presenter Ankur Desai also visits Adil Rashid, Haseeb Hameed and Zafar Ansar to discuss their journeys to the top of the game. Back in November 2016, the four British Muslims played in the starting England cricket team to take on India in Rajkot – a first. Since then those who run cricket have become increasingly concerned about how few South Asians are making the transition from grassroots to professional career. Ankur explores what’s being done to draw minorities to the game and asks whether this group of British Asians can inspire the next generation of players.
