From The Irish Times Letters, 21 March 2007
Ok, very sporting and well done that man, but I heard no reports of arse brutalising going on. No wonder RTE didn't show the highlights.
Madam, - I am a blue-blooded Pakistani with a lot of love of your countrymen. I lived with an Irish in New York and also had the pleasure of being another Irish's room-mate in Washington. You deserved every bit of the victory in Jamaica. You played for the love of the game and the love of your country. I would gladly have the behind of my country brutalised by the Irish any day. Perhaps this way some of your qualities can rub off them. - Yours, etc,
ISFANDYAR KHAN, Islamabad, Pakistan.
