Archbishop of Canterbury meets Pope's cricket team

From The Telegraph-

It was his first encounter with the Vatican XI that plans to take on the Church of England at cricket in September - and the bravado of the Pope's top players was not enough to rattle the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Most Rev. Justin Welby professed himself unperturbed to learn that the Vatican had recruited an Indian batsmen and a Sri Lankan bowler to its team.

The Anglicans would still have God on their side when the Church of England's first XI faced their adversaries in their first match in Canterbury in September, he joked.

" This is the first cricket match between the two since the Reformation,” Archbishop Welby said with a grin. "There will be no intervention on the other side," he added as he tossed a cricket ball in the air in the Vatican gardens. "We all know God is English."
