Gatting bowls libel claim

Former England cricket captain Mike Gatting is heading for the High Court with libel complaints over a biography of fellow cricketer Imran Khan. Gatting claims passages in the book, called 'Imran Khan' could be taken as indicating he was racially prejudiced and says they also cast a slur on his sense of sportsmanship, honour and decency. As well as libel damages he is asking for a court order banning further publication of the words of which he complains. Charles Caplin & Co is representing him.
