Clapton swaps electric guitar for cricket bat
The former Cream and Derek and the Dominoes guitar player will be the captain in a charity match in Surrey this weekend, BBC News reports.
Cricket stars Ryan Sidebottom and Wasim Akram will also be putting in an appearance at the event, which will raise funds for the Clapton-founded Crossroads Centre.
Bill Wyman, former bass guitar player in The Rolling Stones, is set to participate as well.
Meanwhile, Clapton's former Cream colleague Jack Bruce has welcomed being made a Doctor of Letters by Glasgow Caledonian University.
The singer and bass guitar player described this as an "incredible honour", particularly as it has been awarded in his home city.
Cream were regarded as one of the seminal bands of the late 1960s, and were behind rock classics such as White Room, Badge, I Feel Free and Sunshine of Your Love.
