India vs Pakistan semi final, ‘Cricket ka Maha Muqabla’

THERE ARE only two days to go for the most anticipated match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. All eyes of cricket lovers from across the globe are on India vs Pakistan semi final match of the Cricket World Cup on Wednesday, March 30, at Mohali’s Punjab Cricket Association Stadium.

Both Indian and Pakistani cricketers know very well the importance of the semi final match of the ongoing Cricket World Cup. All cricketers will have to perform double their potential to beat their opponents.

Captains of both sides will have to maintain calm from toss to the last ball of the match. Both, Dhoni and Afridi, should pick a playing XI according to their performances and the PCA stadium wicket.

In the maha muqabala a sinister element has been added. This is becasue prior to the India vs Pakistan semi final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has warned his Pakistani team not to indulge in any spot-fixing. He also said that he is keeping a close watch on this aspect.

India vs Pakistan semi final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is being describing as the "mother of all Indo-Pak matches" Indian and Pakistani cricket-mad fans are in no mood to listen to any negative result about their country. They want only one thing that their country wins at any cost against their estranged neighbour.

Indian fans are claiming to have Sachin, Sahwag, Yuvraj, Dhoni and Zaheer as their crunch situation performers. The overall record is also in India’s favour.

Then there’s the massive expectation of Sachin scoring his hundredth international hundred against arch-rival Pakistan. For Indian fans and cricket lovers around the world the icing on the cake would be sachin making a dashing century and leading the country to a good win.

But Pakistan is not going to sit on their hanuches and let India dictate proceedings on the field. Players like Afridi, Gul, the Akmal brothers, and their shrewd spinners are going to throw everything they have in their loaded arsenal at the famed Indian batting line-up.

It seems everything is set for the maha muqabla to begin – talent, revenge, pressure, patriotism, landmarks, past record, the setting in Mohali, the distinguished audience, expectation of fans in respective countries and those in tens of other countries – and of course, a place in the final of the ICC 2011 World Cup.
