More than just a game for India and Pakistan

Will not beg India to play cricket with us, says Pakistan cricket board chief

Will not beg India to play cricket with us, says Pakistan cricket board chief

Jadeja blitz in Bangalore 1996: India 287-8 (50 overs) beat Pakistan 248-9 (49 overs) by 39 runs at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. His brilliance combined with humility makes him one of the most loved players in the game and it is hard to imagine the Indian Cricket Team without him.

Among them are two iconic names - Abdul Jalil aka Chacha Cricket from Pakistan and Sudhir Gautam aka Sachin from India.

Despite the magnitude of the occasion, India skipper Kohli said his team were treating the match - and the opposition - like any other. With Shikhar Dhawan out of the game, the responsibility will be even more on Rohit to deliver.

Pakistan's captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, center, and teammates leave the field after their win over England in the Cricket World Cup match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, Monday, June 3, 2019. The restaurant's traditional Pakistani bus will be driven through the streets, decked out in the nation's green and white flag, while the Pakistan team have accepted an invitation for dinner in two weeks' time, which Chaudhry hopes will be to honour a victory.

Babar hit a quick-fire 46 when Pakistan beat India by 180 runs in the 2017 Champions Trophy final.

But it's the Indians who have a slight edge when it comes to ICC ODI tournaments in England. "Intercity travel is still being done in buses whereas football teams in the English Premier League have moved onto trains for travel as it saves time", the source pointed.

Before making the shift to the AFL, the Broncos were the last club he played for throughout his league career. He hasn't indicated where he is going, so we'll wait until the dust settles and then look at those options".

On the pitch, India have won all six of their meetings against their neighbors in World Cups as they look to maintain their flawless record in the English city of Manchester. Yet the record does not guarantee India a straightforward win.

"I just look to stand up to them because I hate to lose and play passionately", Kohli said after his man-of-the match performance.

"This is the class of 2019 - what are they going to say about you in history?"

It's advantage India with the toss too. This World Cup season had already seen three abandoned matches, South Africa-West Indies, Sri Lanka-Pakistan and Sri Lanka-Bangladesh, before India joined the washed-out club.

Mani also made it clear that despite the continued suspension of bilateral cricket between Pakistan and India, the relations between the two boards remained cordial. "I am prepared for this game, everyone in the team is prepared".

With just a day to go for the much-anticipated, high octane World Cup clash between India and Pakistan, cricket fans across the globe are praying that the rain gods stay away from Old Trafford Sunday.
