Nikhil Advani's film Patiala House will feature a cameo by former British captain David Gower.  Recently,the crew shot a few scenes with Kumar and Gower at the Oval, says a media report.Akshay, who is being trained under Balwinder Singh Sandhu as reported, is quite excited to meet Gower. A source reveals, “ 

Akki plays Gattu, whose cricketing career is cut short by his dictatorial father, played by Rishi Kapoor. Gattu gets a second chance when the England selectors put together a brand-new team for a Twenty20 World Cup in England after a disastrous Test series in India.

Akshay religiously trained under Sandhu at Malshej Ghat during the shoot of Farah Khans Tees Maar Khan before leaving for the London schedule.” The scenes shot at the Oval will be cricket matches played between various teams. 

Apart from Gower, other former England captains, Graham Gooch, John Emburey and Nasser Hussain are also expected to feature in special appearances.
