Barack Obama Tries Cricket With Brian Lara

obama_brian_lara_cricket1

Kridaya collects all the reactions online. Obama, like most people more acquainted with baseball, holds the bat sideways, without appropriately bending the elbows. That means he isn’t going to be playing with a straight bat at all. Tut, tut. Still, his form looks better than President Bush’s in Pakistan.

Actually, I don’t know why this is so hard, though: just hold the bat like you hold a golf club and you have the makings of a perfect straight drive. I suppose in baseball, you want both arms working together, whereas in cricket, it’s either the front-arm or the back-one that dominates, depending on the shot you choose.
