The cricket has been great!

Great cricket! Pakistan’s that is. Some of Pakistan’s media described Pakistan’s crushing win over England in the second Test in Dubai as a miracle. To a non-cricketer like me, it didn’t look like a miracle. It looked like a very professional demolition job by some fine spin bowlers.

Of course I would have liked England to win. But on that performance Pakistan deserved the series. Pakistan surprising itself, finding self-confidence, staying focused, bouncing back to beat the best, working as a team, standing on their own two feet – is there a political metaphor in here somewhere? At any rate the cricket has been great. A great reminder of the ties of history and culture that link the UK and Pakistan.
