Pakistani's Supporting The England Cricket Team???

Couldn't resist linking to this hilarious and heartwarming piece by Andrew Miller in The Times.

Most unexpected quote:
“I am praying for England with full zeal and zest,” Nayyur Abbas, 18, said as he sat with his cousin, Haroon Shehzad, 16, in the top tier of the Waqar Younis enclosure. On his face was painted a St George’s Cross and on his walls at home are posters of Andrew Flintoff. “He is a great attacking bowler,” Nayyur enthused in the manner of a true connoisseur.

If you enjoyed reading that, then I'd suggest Andrew Miller's tour diary on Cricinfo here.
