    Bush to prove he knows cricket

    Source
    ================================================== =====

    A throwaway remark by President George W Bush about being a "cricket match person" has landed him with an afternoon which would tax the patience of most other Americans.

    After visiting India Mr Bush will leave for Pakistan where staff at the US embassy will lay on a cricket match as part of his education in the customs of South Asia.
    The comment was in response to a question from an Indian journalist who asked him in Washington which he would prefer to watch: a Bollywood movie or a game of cricket.
    Apparently foxed by the meaning of Bollywood, he replied: "I'm a cricket match person," to laughter from his aides. "As I understand it, I may have a little chance to learn something about cricket," the former owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team said. "It's a great pastime."
    Beyond the tranquillity of the boundary rope, however, Mr Bush can expect a hostile reception.
    Recent weeks have seen waves of anti-western protests as Islamic hardliners protested against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed and the unpopular alliance between the Pakistan president, Gen Pervez Musharraf, and the United States over the war on terror.

      Don't argue with ignorants. They will first drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.

          Agha Zahid should get the Nobel Peace prize for doing his best to ease tensions between Pakistan and India by making a pitch that guranteed that no team would lose
