Pakistan is scheduled to play the first game on March 16 against the winner of the Group A qualifier. The controversies begin on the issue of Pakistan India matches and security concerned of Pakistani team. As we know Indian extremist groups protested against Pakistani team and threatened not to allow them to play matches with India on their land. Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali khan announced not sending our team to India until Indian government and Indian cricket board gave in writing for providing security to our team. So after Indian government provided these guarantees Pakistani team went to India.
It’s not a fight between common masses of Indo-Pak but some extremist groups of India. People of both countries need to be trained to think positively about their surroundings. We should learn a lesson from US and Canada’s cross border collaboration to improve their affairs and provide backing, why can’t Pakistan and India enter into such arrangements?
Pakistan has more potential to be a developed country than India. It has the resources and talent, yet it seems to sink lower by each passing day. It is time for Pakistan to learn this lesson and correct its focus.
