Why do we need indopak series? Most people will say because we are old rivals, but that’s wrong answer, another answer might be we are neighbors we need to play each other often that’s again not the answer I am looking for. We India and Pakistan are like sibling’s two brothers have you ever experienced sibling rivalry? I know I did. I am elder brother and my little brothers always trying to beat me and it makes me mad to loose well we all hate to lose but sometimes I am not able to sleep whole night when I had no clue what went wrong and my little brother torturing me all day saying he got me I didn’t had a chance that “he is better”.

 

Same goes for IndoPak series, when in World Cup we are beaten by India they remind us we are 9-0 down it kind of sucks and hurts as Pakistani fan, well yeah it does but that’s not just its worst part it we almost had India on more than a few occasions but it was pressure that lead us to defeat. Yes Pakistan has better record in overall wins against India but we still want to defeat India in World Cup and we are very much capable of doing so in fact two times in World T20 when we lost. First one which everyone remembers is final match we lost to India in World T20 2007 when India won by just 5 runs. Second occasion was more painful and guess who was the man who couldn’t get us over the line again? Well no prize for guess here is the scorecard for that match. This match was tied and India won by bowl outs but worst part it we tied the match when Misbah-ul-haq was run-out we just needed 1 more run to get over the line but that’s all it takes.

 

I am not saying it was Misbah’s fault, well he took us that far to winning on both occasions he just couldn’t cross the line but guess who was good enough to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat? Yeah it was Afridi in Asia Cup when he hit two 6s of Ashwin to turn the table on India, but it was more than that single occasions that Pakistan did this and it wasn’t only Afridi who turned defeat into victory it was Javed Miandad the famous 6 on last bowl which remains famous legendary story till present day, not that Afridi’s 6 wasn’t any less matter of fact Afridi hit 2 sixes but they aren’t even close to Miandad one hit. Last but not the least it was Saeed Ajmal in Champions Trophy 2009 India was 2-0 down against us they had never beaten Pakistan in Champions Trophy before but they were winning with Suresh Raina the danger man set on 46 it was Ajmal who took him down here is the scorecard well scorecard shows that Pakistan won by 54 runs but if you watched the match live you will know that how was the match India was slowly moving towards win required rate was almost 6 and everyone who watch match live knew India will get over the line. Afridi got Kolhi and Dhoni two danger man but that wasn’t enough its never enough when you are playing with India, after Ajmal got Raina only obstacle was Yousif Pathan and Aamir got him for just 5 and it was celebration time for Pakistan.

 

Well all these moments all that tension and who is better than who, we India and Pakistan fans after winning against our brother we celebrate that win for ages and we keep remaining each other’s about these matches why Sachin facing Wasim Akram in Karachi well that’s sight which we might not see again but we would love to see India and Pakistan playing each other more often. Only reason 9-0 is so important to us is because we don’t play that each often we will have to wait 4 years till we meet Indian in World Cup and hope that our team can handle the pressure and win for us.

 

Imagine India and Pakistan playing 5 match Indopak series an indopak series just like Ashes and who ever holds the trophy other side will wait for next year to get that trophy back and winning side preparing to retain the trophy instead of giving us reason to support and love our cricketers and supporting Indopak series our boards are just looking for excuses not to play each other’s. We want to play our sibling rivals more often and wining over India is more than just a win. Lets see if India can make it 10-0 or it will be 9-1 in next World Cup T20.
