I don't celebrate Christmas with my family but if I were to get something I'd ask for a new cricket pack and a whole kit to go with it.

I don't do much on Christmas day, it's just another day for me. But I love cricket so Boxing Day is fun because it's the Boxing Day Test. I'm going to spend my holidays playing cricket and watching all the test matches.

We have Eid and Ramadan from April and that's a big celebration for me.
