‘Have seen Indian and Pakistani cricketers eat together’: Sarfaraz Ahmed on change in dynamics of India-Pakistan cricket

Former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has rued the fact that Pakistan and India are no longer able to play cricket they once used to but is hopeful of the two teams being able to rekindle their rivalry on the field soon. The mother of all cricketing battles – India and Pakistan – has only been limited to ICC events with political tensions on either side of the border putting a halt to bilateral ties between the two teams. However, as Sarfaraz points out, things were never this edgy between the two teams. If the mind can hark back to the final of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017, after Pakistan had comprehensively beaten India in the final, players of both teams were seen enjoying themselves, sharing jokes and laughing together. However, keeping the current scenario in mind, that saw former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi making controversial remarks regarding India and its Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the likes of Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina have cut their ties with the former allrounder.’
