One of the intense rivalry of sports India vs Pakistan are back in action. But cricket lovers have to show some patience as this will start end of this year, 2012.
Pakistan cricket team will tour India later this year for 3 One day Internationals and 2 Twenty Twenty matches. The series is too short and sadly not a single test match is in the schedule. Sadly after the Mumbai attacks there were no bilateral series arranged between these two rivalries and after 5 years break these two teams will be back. This was not only the efforts of Pakistan Cricket Board and BCCI but also the government of Pakistan urged Indian government to think about the bilateral series. And in result a very positive response given by them. More than 1 billion people are waiting for this series to get start as soon as possible. Although this year Olympics is all set to start later this month and yes also the T20 World cup but the charisma and intensity between these two teams are distinct. Many people in India as well in Pakistan are waiting to see the Teesra of Saeed Ajmal, flamboyant Shahid Afridi, Yuvraj Singh, Young guns Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Virat Kholi and MurliVijay, Legendary Batsman Sachin Tendulkar, fast bowlers Sami, ZAK and Gul and not the least Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik. 😀
Many will be missed such as Kumble, Shoaib Akhtar, Inzamam, Dravid, Yousuf and Ganguly.
Let us hope that the series get started without any obstruction and hurdle and we will see an excitement and thrill between Pakistan and India not only in India but also in Pakistan.
