    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    It's a pity Ahmed is almost 34 years old or else he might have been able to push for a gig for Australia down the line. Given his background that would have been a remarkable story.

    Well apparently:

    - He claims to only be 30; and
    - He'll be eligible later the year

    Much, much stranger things have happened.

    Will all the stereotypical VB drinking bogans change their minds on refugees if Fawad spins us to back-to-back Ashes victories?

    I actually just read a story on the Daily Mail website about how a small group of anti-refugee activists protested outside the MCG where he was playing today. This is the story:


    Activists Picket Aussie Refugee Cricketer
    February 21, 2013
    By Stuart Shackleton

    Australian anti-refugee activists today staged a protest against the selection in the Victorian cricket side of a Pakistani player who came to the country seeking asylum.

    The small band of protestors gathered outside the Melbourne Cricket Ground on the last day of play between Queensland and Victoria, who had provided a State debut to Fawad Ahmed, 33, who succesfully sought asylum in Australia to escape persecution in Pakistan.

    Police moved on the protestors, who were allegedly making inflammatory chants, including one in which they yelled in unison: "Cricket's for us, Cricket's for us, wear whites, be white and that's alright. Cricket's for you, Cricket's for you, as long as your Aussie and not some brown dude."

    The officers also removed from one of the protestors a sign which read, "Shihad were a great band but Jihad is a bad plan."

    Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland said he was shocked by the behaviour of the protestors who were "appalling in their discriminatory actions, despite their ability to craft a catchy slogan".

    One Victorian fan who witnessed the protest described it as "really fully bad". "As far as I'm concerned it shouldn't matter where your'e from, if you can play cricket heaps good who cares if you are a different looking dark sort of fella."

    Gets more than his fair share of 'respect' on CW. I'm not sure what the situation is with the general Australian public.

    Don't think he's a very good bowler yet but it isn't hard to see him developing into one by simply playing more cricket.

    When you've played so little FC cricket you're always playing catch up and the better batsmen will find you out a lot quicker than the more experienced twirlers, what gets me with Lyon though is he looks so basic, in a world where most of the new spinners tend to have a trick or two up their sleeve Lyon is just plane old Jane really,

    Him and Narine have similar stories, both never played a lot of Fc games before playing Test cricket, they are close in age too (Narine is 24), so it will be interesting to see who develops the most over the next couple of years.

    Yeah, Lyon certainly deserves more love. He's extremely underrated.

    I agree thoroughly with this post.
