I'll pat my own back, thanks

Over on Cricinfo, Andrew Miller's little piece on Pakistani fan behavior during England's tour, has sparked a virtual orgy of self-congratulation as one Pakistani fan after another writes in (and so does a rather odd Indian woman suffering from an identity crisis). The profuse thanks doled out to Miller are indicative how desperate things are in that part of the world, after years and years of bad press. Of course, the Pakistani crowds being referred to, I'm sure, are not the same ones who didn't stand during the Indian national anthem when the Indian soccer team toured last year. Or are they?
