The Engl 436 Allahakbarries

Wonderful time Monday's class learning cricket in the AQ lawn with Raj Salvi from Indcan Cricket (2nd from the left.)

The Allahakbarries are a delightful piece of Edwardiana. J.M Barrie, author of Peter Pan (and -- gratuitous Edwardian-Age-in-pop-culture reference -- subject of a 2004 Johnny Depp & Kate Winslett film) put together a cricket team comprised of many Edwardian literary greats: our own P.G. Wodehouse & Jerome K. Jerome among them.
