A Nagesh Kukunoor interview (ignore the case of duplicated text please) with Screen about his forthcoming film Iqbal features the following bit of indirect association (my emphasis added):

Are you acquainted with the life of bodyline bowler Harold Larwood?
Yes, I am. Why?

One of Larwood's tricks was putting a coin on the track and using it as a target.
And Iqbal does it too! It's just a coincidence. I have seen the Bodyline series but have no recollection of that particular incident. Thanks for reminding me. Henceforth I can say in my interviews that Jardine was my inspiration.
