Today, Sunday, 4 July 2021, Lord Mayor’s Appeal held the charitable Twenty20 cricket match on the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company venue, with Damian’s brother William Russell serving as captain for his team, The Lord Mayor XI versus Damian serving as Captain for his team, The Bobby Axelrod XI. And it looks like Damian’s other brother Gareth Lewis played on the Bobby Axelrod XI team as well!

The winning team was The Bobby Axelrod XI, but really both teams win because the match was for charity!
