I am so glad to hear this. Indeed, my craze for cricket dripped into the story of the Englishman. 'Cricket' played a cameo appearance in my first novel too When Strangers meet..

A When I caught snippets of the IndiaPak match today, it came back to me how much I loved the chapter where you introduced Richard Baxter playing cricket. I am not a crazy cricket fan or anything but it occurred to me that you obviously knew what you were talking about. It just felt very authentic and I felt like I was in Baxter's head. Fantastic writing! I loved it!
