When you think of the leader of our country, you want someone smart, decisive and ready to make the hard decisions. This may be so, but for some today it was more important that our new PM Theresa May was a cricket fan.
May took some time out of her busy schedule of running the country to watch the England vs Pakistan one-day international match at Lord's.
And this really pleased cricket fans.
Another plus, Theresa May likes cricket. She's at Lords today.

Some saw it as yet another way she was smashing gender stereotypes.
Watching the cricket at Lords as a guest of the ECB sitting next to Theresa May. Impressive role model for women's leadership.

And it definitely looked like she was having a lovely time with her husband, Philip.

This isn't the first time that May has won fans for her love of the game.
Happy to learn Theresa May loves cricket

May has previously revealed that one of her sporting heroes is former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott because of the way he "solidly got on with what he was doing". May might divide opinion, but we can get on board with that sentiment.
