Eric Clapton was introduced to the sport by Dr. David English, former president of RSO Records and founder of the Bunbury charity cricket team in the 1980s. He joined the first Bunbury side in a match played at Ripley Court School in 1986. Since then, the every-changing celebrity team has raised more than 10 million pounds for various charities. In the ensuing years, Eric fielded his own EC XI in a number of celebrity charity cricket matches against The Bunbury Side.
