Cricket is a gentleman’s game, you are expected to behave a certain way and watch the game silently while appreciating the players’ splendour, right?
Ever since the inception of India Vs Pakistan matches, this ‘Notion’ has been breaking one match at a time. The cricket ground becomes a battle arena when the clash of the Titans happens.
There have been instances when India Vs Pakistan matches served us with moments that looked straight outta slick thriller flick, here are 3 best moments from the lot:-
1). Abdul Qadir challenges a 16-year-old marvel and what happens next? He gets hit for 6, 0, 4, 6, 6, 6 in one over and this 16 yr kid was none other than ‘Sachin Tendulkar’.
Abdul Qadir went up to Sachin and said: "You should try and hit me for a six in the next over. And if you succeed you will become a star".
Well, leave becoming a star, he became GOD instead!
2). The nail-biting moment when Javed Miandad hits a six on the last ball as Pakistan wins the match by 1 wicket in Sharjah.
It was Asia Cup final, 1986 and Pakistan was struggling really badly but Javed came in to bat and made sure that he leaves the pitch only after achieving victory.
3). Karachi crowd threw stones at Ganguly and he reverted back by playing a marvellous inning of 89 runs.
It was an ODI Series that was being played in 1997, as things got fiery, Karachi crowd started to ridicule Ganguly by throwing stones at him, Sachin Tendulkar had to intervene and request the referees to halt the match. What followed next was a ‘CLASSIC’ Dada Knock!
