The North West Frontier


Farokh Engineer batting for India

Cedric Rhodes, chairman of Lancashire, had seen on the news that there were growing hostilities between India and Pakistan, with this in mind he turned to their overseas player Farokh Engineer and said :

"Is there any likelihood of you having to return home and fight for your country ?"

Farokh replied "Only if the fighting reaches my village, then I will have to go and protect my wife and children."

"And where is your village ?" asked the chairman.

"Altrincham."
