A Master's Degree in Cricket Diplomacy?
Having been kicked out of a pub for protesting that they should switch over from the football (Wales v. Brazil) and put on the Pakistan v England cricket game (I might have mentioned that the Welsh are crap and sleep with sheep!) I ended up following the cricket online at the Guardian website. They have the best coverage of the game by far and it can at times be ridiculously funny. Anyhow, I came across a comment by some random woman who happens to be researching her Master's degree on cricket and International Relations! How cool is that? Check out her brand spanking new blog here.

Hello!
I am the random woman who has jsut handed in my thesis on cricket diplomacy...
I'm hoping to put it up on the web sometime (once it's been marked I guess).
Anyway doing the research was brilliant. My tutors thought I was insane when I first suggested it, but then I showed them how much has been written about the topic in the South Asian press (and a few academic journals), they begrudgingly oked the topic. Anyway keep checking my blog, as I am adding more cricket-related thoughts when i can...
