    Default Should India play cricket with Pakistan again?




    India and Pakistan are set to resume cricketing ties. The BCCI has agreed to play three ODIs and two T20 matches with the arch-rival. The neighbouring countries have not played each other in a bilateral series for close to five years. The decision to resume cricketing ties with Pakistan was taken by the Board's powerful Working Committee, which met on Monday, evoking mixed reactions from former cricketers and fans from both countries. "It was decided to resume cricketing ties with Pakistan by inviting the Pakistan cricket team for a short series in December 2012–January 2013. The modalities will be worked out shortly," the BCCI said in a statement after the meeting. India and Pakistan last played in a bilateral series in November 2007. The series was clinched 3-2 by India.

    Default Ties snapped since 2008 terror attacks




    The series will be played in December-January. Kolkata, Chennai and Delhi will be the venues for the one-dayers while Bangalore and Ahmedabad will host the two T20 matches.
    The BCCI has scheduled the short series when England returns from its tour of India for the Christmas break. Ties were snapped after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks and there have been several attempts by the Pakistan Cricket Board in recent months to convince the BCCI for a resumption as the contests featuring the two arch-rivals are a huge hit with fans and generate good revenue.

    Default There have been only three Indo-Pak ODIs in recent times




    The PCB was keen on hosting India to end the international isolation that came with the 2009 Lahore terror attack on Sri Lankan cricketers. But with the BCCI reluctant to agree to such an idea because of security concerns, PCB was also willing to play on neutral venue. The resumption of cricket ties also got a boost after the foreign secretaries of both the countries asserted that sporting relations should be strengthened. The thaw in the relations was evident much earlier when the BCCI invited Pakistan's domestic Twenty20 champion Sialkot Stallions to participate in the Qualifying Tournament of Champions League Twenty20 to be held in South Africa later this year.During the visit of PCB chief Zaka Ashraf to India last year and the subsequent ICC and Asian Cricket Council meetings in Malaysia, there had been discussions between officials of both the Boards on the matter.The two neighbours haven't played a bilateral series owing to political reasons since 2007, when Pakistan toured India. Three ODIs in the last three years is all they have met in.

    Default Cicket diplomacy has played a part in bringing the neighbours closer




    With leaders of the two countries meeting frequently in recent times, coupled with the fact that the respective Boards are keen for the same, speculation was rife that it won't be long before an announcement to this effect was made. But even if cricketing ties do resume, one cannot negate the possibility of them getting affected by political considerations yet again.
    Even though sporting relations between the two countries have suffered owing to political tensions, cricket diplomacy has played a part in bringing the neighbours closer.
    If it was Zia-ul-Haq who set the precedent in 1987 by watching a Test with his Indian counterpart (Rajiv Gandhi); earlier this year Prime Minister Manmohan Singh followed suit inviting his Pakistan counterpart (Yousuf Raza Gilani) and President Asif Ali Zardari to Mohali to watch the much-hyped World Cup semi-final between the two countries.
    The success of that match led to calls of resuming bilateral series between the teams

    Default PCB's prayers have been answered



    The Pakistan board took the first step to this effect last year, expressing intent to tour India first, if need be. The Indian team touring Pakistan seemed out of question considering international cricket has been suspended in that country since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March 2009.Ashraf, who took over from Ijaz Butt last month, had late last year said he had written to BCCI president N Srinivasan to revive the series between the two countries, 'because it's a game and should be kept away from politics'.
    The fact that only a handful of countries play cricket further increases the importance of such a popular series, something the international cricketing body (ICC) is fully aware of.
    There was a big glitch though. With Team India having a packed itinerary, culling out dates for a possible bilateral series, irrespective of where it is played, is an impossible task.
    However, the BCCI seems to have found a way out. And PCB's prayers have been answered.

    Patriotism Appreciated!
    As a fellow Indian, I am as furious as u are at the pakistani govt and army for supporting terrorism and not acting upon to curb it.
    But it is unfair if the furiousity and the hatred is directed towards pakistan's general public as well and people of pakistan are devoid of watching cricket for political reasons. I believe Indian people want India Pak matches as much as Pakistani public, Cricket shall never be politicized nor made a fuss of , every now and then.
    Either BCCI and Govt of India should decide India will forfeit all its matches against pakistan in ICC tournaments and Asia Cups till the time 26/11 culprits r acted upon, else they should be playing like other Cricketing nations with sporting spirits.
    This middle path and a mockery of disrupted cricketing ties every now n then leads us nowhere!

    Well, I don't want to fight on this issue.

    But, the same words we (Pakistan) can say too. Hundreds of deaths of Pakistanis in the train. Not any proper investigation yet... Thousands of soldiers lost their lives in battle against terrorism. etc. etc. We also have many things to say like this... But we both (India & Pakistan) shouldn't.

    It's time to move on and build friendship. Together we are much stronger. And, Together we can end the poverty and stand against the brutal missions of west.

    Don't go on the words of politicians. Politicians on both sides try to fuel the emotions of people in order to earn their seats in the parliament. If war will happen, then our (Pakistan & India) politicians will be the first who'll run out of our countries. And, only a normal innocent person will be killed in that war.

    So, end the hatreds of the hearts and build true friendship.

    In my opinion, sports and politics shouldn't be mixed. Am seeing a lot of this going on with the Olympics with Syria not allowed to enter the UK because UK doesn't like Syria's leadership and human rights record. I think thats really sad, who do these politicians think they are.... A countries affairs are no fault of the payers. Those players should be seen as individuals who have worked extremely hard to get where they are today. Credit and access should be given where due ! So, yes, in my opinion Pakistan and India should play as much as they want.
    So may it be

    I Agree. Aisa pito ke fir se khelane ko mana karade.
    But, don't expect any change in Attitude of Pakistani Govt. or Army in supporting terrorism.
    Cricket diplomacy don't work. Its foolish intellectuals of media created such picture.

    कांग्रेस की पैनी दृष्टि 2014 के लोकसभा चुनाव पर है. पाकिस्तान क्रिकेट टीम को बुलाकर कांग्रेस 2014 के चुनाव में सभी मुसलमानों के वोट प्राप्त करना चाहती है.

    This is the most horrible decision made by any so called leader of the country which just shows the lack of common sense and lack of sense of judgement.........I strongly feel that these ties should not have been resumed........it's not the question of India or Pakistan.........it's the question of humanity.........What about the people who were massacred horribly in Mumbai??.Either the leader has completely lost it or the Government has completely lost it.....and on top of that they are giving complete protection to that barbarian terrorist who was responsible for 160 deaths in Mumbai alone............spending a sole amount of 1-5 crores just for his security(invest that in poor people's well being that wud be more sensible).........These are heights of lunatism...........and encouraging these ties would mean making India more vulnerable to terrorist attacks........There is no point in making a Economics doctorate(who knows that might be fake too) from Oxford University making him the so called leader of a country if he does not know how to apply his mind and education for the well being and progress of his country.......................
