Cameron auctions beloved cricket bat


UPI News Service, 05/12/2012 

An autographed cricket bat British Prime Minister David Cameron called his most prized possession has been auctioned off for charity, The Daily Telegraph said.

A source told the newspaper the bat, which was signed by India's legendary Sachin Tendulkar, fetched 3,400 pounds for the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation, which is raising money to build a new cricket venue in the African nation.

The sale should reduce some of the prime minister's anxiety over the coveted bat. He had joked, sort of, at a recent gathering of the Conservative Friends of India that he had seen his wife, Samantha, once using the bat to knock the ball around at Chequers.

"I said, 'No, darling, put it down, this is probably the most valuable possession I have,'" he told his audience. The Telegraph said only a few of the members of the mainly Indian audience thought he was overreacting and laughed.
