19th September is not going to be a day even slightly lesser than any festival, and I’m not just talking about the cricket-lovers!
Yes, India-Pakistan cricket match is not just a match, it’s a battle! A battle even fiercer than the Clash of Titans. And don’t you dare ask who’s gonna win, because there’s no way India is going to lose it!
Yes, yes, I know your argument, that Virat Kohli is not playing, but boy! Do you doubt the competency of Rohit Sharma?
And do you think India is going to miss this win after its defeat in India vs. England ODI series. The battle is going to attract a worldwide attention –not just of India and Pakistan or UAE. India-Pakistan cricket matches are one of those rare moments of the cricket world that JUST CAN’T BE MISSED!
Yes, even the most indifferent-to-national-sentiments lot becomes patriotic on such days, and even the cricket-haters become cricket-enthusiasts on such days. And after the unavoidable reasons due to which such battles between India-Pakistan have been reduced to just Asia Cup, ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Cricket World Cup, this match has become much more important.
And after all, nothing can bring out the best in the cricketers of India and Pakistan the way a match between both of them can.
And let’s just not say India is ready for the match, let’s say India is ready for winning the match! So mark the date, and be ready.
