While India and Pakistan bilateral international cricket series is stuck under the governments issues, both of their disabled cricketers broke that barrier.
India and Pakistan’s physically challenged cricketers met against each-other for the three T-20 series in India on 4th, 5th , and 7th December at Roshanara Club ground, New Delhi.
India won the first two matches while Pakistan won the thrilling last match in super over. India clinched the series with 2-1.
It was the third visit for Pakistan in India since 2012. The Indian team was scheduled to travel for a series in last December but Pakistan government cancelled their visas due to security concerns after a terrorist attack in a school at Peshawar. India had travelled last time in Pakistan in 2012.
India and Pakistan are excited to meet once again.
The Pakistani captain, Abdul Mallan told Hindustan Times on Tuesday, “I have seen the news about the India-Pakistan cricket issue, but this is no issue for us. We are same age-group friends but inside the ropes we are rivals. Both sides played tough cricket and the last match was a cliffhanger. We are sad as we leave for home but we decided to play more against each other. We want India to play in Lahore or Rawalpindi,”
The Pakistan team manager Waqar spoke out, “Like always, it was home for us, and we are taking back love and affection. We would like to come back and play cricket here,”
Physically Challenged Cricket Association of India general secretary, Ravi Chauhan said, “Both teams were together for a week and it looked like a family gathering. The players dined together in the stadium and team hotel. The Pakistani players wanted to see the Delhi Metro and other places so we arranged for a bus. They will leave on Thursday morning via the Wagah Border.”
