I don’t like cricket…I love it (especially the IPL)!!

Throughout April and May 2011 I worked at The London Studios on the South bank  doing the hair and make-up on the presenters and guests of the IPL Cricket which was shown daily on ITV +4.

For those that don’t know , IPL Cricket is The Indian Premier League.  The 20/20 cricket was a fast and exciting party except on the days when the sun shined down on us in the studio in London and ironically the unexpected indian rain stopped play – typical!

The main presenters included Matt Smith – British broadcaster and one of ITV sports main presenters; Shonali Nagrani – Indian film Actress/model and television anchor for the IPL; Angus Scott – journalist and sports presenter and Isa Guha – England cricketer and presenter for the IPL.

There was a whole heap of guests that appeared on the show who were either cricketers, ex-cricketers or cricket analysts, including: Simon Hughes; Paul Collingwood; Dimi Mascarenhas; Ian Harvey; Alex Stewart; Mark Ramprakash; Vikram Solanki; Graeme Hick; John Emburey; Shaun Udal; Mark Butcher; Dominic Cork; Niall O’Brien; Clive Lloyd; Paul Nixon; Dirk Nannes and David Hussey,

It was an amazing , fun experience and surprisingly I now know a lot about cricket! Who’d have thought it!

Love Lucy xx
