Confusion - Part II

Bob Woolmer confuses me again. I don't understand how the following four sentences hang together:

"What impresses me, though, is the lack of antagonism or violence between the supporters. There is no inane chanting as at a football match in England. Large queues have waited patiently for tickets all day in Lahore. Cricket, I think, is the most significant factor in creating a patient outlook on the sub-continent, in spite of matches between India and Pakistan leading to almost unbearable tension."

Sentence 1 is not connected to sentence 2; 2 is not connected to 3; 4 is a complete throwaway line. In fact, 4 is ridiculously patronizing and shallow.
