India and Pakistan have always been two rival nations since their birth. The political tensions among both the nations have killed the joy of cricket for both cricket-loving nations. Fans always crave for Indo-Pak series. It has been years since the arch-rivals faced each other in bilateral series. The hatred shall stay limited to political aspects which have been their part since the birth of both countries. Involving the hate in the game has destroyed the spirit of the game and the fans see each other as enemies. All people want is more fight.
The game between the two nations is always thrilling to watch. The massive crowd and chants from both sides are explosive and people can hardly listen to voices amidst the shouts.
Cricket is a game of spirit and the game among two cricket-loving nations with political conflicts among them from years might reduce the friction. Last time when India and Pakistan faced each other in a bilateral series was 2012-13. Since then, they have faced each other in mega ICC events only.
Waqar Younis urges for India Pakistan bilateral series
Waqar Younis, the former Pakistani bowler has spoken in favor of organizing India Pakistan bilateral series. He said to let it be either Imran-Kapil series or Independence series, but the game among two nations will be the biggest hit in the world.
“If you go and ask people of both the countries on whether Pakistan and India should play each other, everyone, around 95% of them will agree, that cricket between these two should be played. Be it ‘Imran-Kapil Series’ or ‘Independence Series’ or whatever name we give to it, I think that it would be the biggest hit in the world.
Waqar opined India and Pakistan shall be playing regular matches to deprive cricket fans of India and Pakistan matches.
“I think Pakistan India should play and should play on a regular basis to avoid depriving cricket lovers of India and Pakistan,” he said while speaking during a chat show QT20 for GloFans.
He maintained no other venue shall be added as India vs Pakistan matches shall either happen in India or Pakistan. He is sure of the matches in the future between arch-rivals.
“I do see Pakistan and India playing bilateral series. I am not sure where though, but I hope it will be either in Pakistan or in India. You don’t want to see them playing in some other country because that’s where you want to see them. You want to see them playing in their own countries. But I definitely say that in the next few years, I would say, Pakistan India will be playing,” Waqar Younis further added.
