India Vs Pakistan match is something that not just the people of India and Pakistan but the whole world looks forward to. We have all watched the first match in the current trophy series and it was rather not very daunting and did not drag us to the edge of our seats; all in all, it was an easy win for India. Yet again, we’re all set to await a nail biting match that will make us scream louder and louder with every ball that is bowled and every score that is hit. The untamed balls that hits the batsman with a slow left armer like Imad Waseem or a ball hit beyond boundary by Kohli will make us jump from our chairs! We all love the sore throat caused by screaming for a worthy match like this, isn’t it?!
