Passing the cricket test

Some years ago Norman Tebbit was reviled for suggesting that most people from England's ethnic minorities failed the cricket test of loyalty to England. I think this is still the case. My friend born in Guyana joins me in supporting England except when the West Indies visit. As a Yorkshire supporter in London who am I to complain?

But one Sajid Mahmood from Bolton and Lancashire, having been selected for England, passes the test with flying colours. He has announced he will not let his father have a ticket if he is coming to the test to support Pakistan.
