Last night, Kumar, Ashish and I went to Naz 8 cinemas to watch the first India-Pakistan one day cricket match. All I can say is… HOLY SHIT!! That was easily one of the most nerve-wracking, pulse-pounding, nail-biting sporting events I have EVER seen! First India racks up 349 runs (it’s highest ever against Pakistan), and then Pakistan makes 344 while chasing, which is the highest score ever made by a side batting second, winning or losing. The match was still on till the last ball, and the tension on the field was visible. This game was perfect validation for my being a fan of cricket. Not only was it an amazing game, but the audience (both at the stadium, and in the theater) was extremely sporting, applauding good play by both Indian and Pakistani players. Good stuff all around. All I can say is, bring on the rest of the series!
