Australia changes the law to get spin bowler on team !

ABC (Australia)
Fawad Ahmed asylum case: Spin-bowler 'got special treatment' in borderline citizenship case "The Immigration Department had major concerns about the way promising Pakistani cricketer Fawad Ahmed got a permanent visa and then Australian citizenship, confidential documents indicate. .....They also say Ahmed is fortunate his asylum application coincided with Cricket Australia's search for a spinner. .....With Ahmed on the verge of deportation in mid-2012, Mr Bennett began a campaign to get then-immigration minister Chris Bowen to intervene and overturn the Refugee Review Tribunal's decision." Comment: We are all equal, but some are more equal than others - yup.
