Cricket lovely cricket II

See 'Cricket lovely cricket' below.

What a good one-day series ended at Edgbaston yesterday, and how appropriate that in should be drawn 2-2.

How appropriate too that the Man of the Match yesterday should have been Sajid Mahmood, an Englishman of Pakistani origins. As he's a Lancastrian he is bound to appeal to myself.

But it is really very sad that he should be subject to abuse from Pakistan supporters in the crowd. They should rather look to him as an example of what can be achieved by a man of talent in Britain regardless of his ethnic or religious background and, in the words of the New Testament 'go thy way and do thou likewise'.
