Veteran Journalist Raju Bharatan spoke about the late Saraiya, who did radio commentary all over the cricketing glove while Dr Manoj Khanna dwelled on the importance of cricketers looking good.

The foundation plans to organise cricket-related discussions and perpetuate the memory of the commentator who passed away in 2012.
