Another victory for English cricket?

Harold Pinter has just scooped the Nobel Prize, and I'm ashamed to say I can only remember one of his poems (and an extremely short one, at that) off the top of my head:

I saw Len Hutton in his prime
Another time

Another time

I've been grazing Pinter's worryingly professional website (I'm not sure if it's ever a good idea to be put '.org' after an individual's name!), and I see that he is the President of the Gaieties Cricket Club, and has dedicated a poem to Justin Falkus, who holds the club's highest batting average. Can we chalk Pinter's Nobel up as another win for English cricket?

The World Socialist Website has put up an article which focuses on Pinter's political activism.
