Unfortunately, we lost the semi-final at Mohali. However, what we won is more than just a cricket match. Pakistanis all around the world are proud on their heroes. Shahid Khan Afridi and rest of the team played united against India. In world cup 2011, Pakistan played well and reached in top four countries. We may be lost the match, but we won the unity, team spirit, and being one nation.
Green flag furled on the other side of border, Pakistan National Anthem played on their land with respect and honor. What if we would not conquered, we fought, and fought with enormous spirit like a team – one for all and all for one.
As Bonaparte used to say, a leader is dealer is hope; so, our captain in hard times. Afridi kept the team united. In true words, captain’s hard work is responsible team’s outstanding performance throughout the world cup ’11. However, we have lost two matches; one against India and another against New Zealand, but still we have won more of we played.
Losing is also part of game. What if we lost, we still salute our captain and the boys. We are still proud on greens.
Team Pakistan, We love you.
What other would be better description of Dono Taraf hai Aag Brabar Lagi Howi then an India-Pakistan cricket match? In few next hours, there is going to be battle on the cricket field not just a match.
India and Pakistan separated as two independent nations from year 1947. Still it has some connections with uninterrupted metal ribbons, sand paths, and airways. No matter how many peace treaties we signed, cricket between Pakistan and India always remains a war. A war that must be won.
This year, it is for the very time Pakistan is playing India in world cup semi final. Fingers are crossed and heartbeats are high on both sides of the division line. March 30, 2011 is a big day not just for India and Pakistan but for international cricket as well.
No one but Almighty knows what the day will bring for both countries and for cricket. However, whatever it will bring, I hope it come with peace, harmony, and love.
I wish all the very best my team.
Green Shirts Zindabad, Pakistan Pa’aindabad.
