Pakistan will be on the look out to get their first win against India in an ICC World Cup event when the two will clash in the T20 World Cup match at Eden’s gardens in Kolkata on Saturday. Pakistan and India have individually won the cup but none of them has won at home.
Pakistan has been made the favorites by the former Test batsman expert after the Green Shirts won against Bangladesh by 55 runs. India on the other hand lost to New Zealand by 47 runs.
Former Pakistan skipper, Miandad has slammed comments made by Afridi concerning “India Love” that have brought up a lot of controversy.
During a special show that was anchored by Vikram Chandra on NDTV, it was a fight between Miandad and Gavaskar. Here are some of the highlights:
# Miandad tackles the idea that the government has the duty of providing security to players. The people in Kolkata love sports because it is supposed to be a source of fun and not war.
# Pakistan played well in the last match whereas India did not.
# Miandad commented on the “India Love” controversy where he said that Amir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Khan have given India a good name. can anyone have a bigger love than that of his motherland?
# Gavaskar on the other hand said that cricketers should not be political oriented. One can never be aware of the behind the scenes when it comes to diplomacy.
# He adds that Sachin tendulkar, who has now become an MP, can be of great help in resuming India VS Pakistan cricket ties.
# In a concluding remark, the India VS Pakistan match is expected to have a positive impact. It is among the top tournaments in the world.
