The relationship between India and Pakistan hasn’t been good for decades. The friendship between the two neighboring countries turned complex and hostile owing to a sequence of historical and political events.
Fans from all across the world want India and Pakistan bilateral ties to resume soon. Due to the increasing tensions between the two countries, India and Pakistan haven’t locked horns with each other in a bilateral series since 2012.
Both nations played against each other only in international events. Talking about their most recent encounter, India beat Pakistan by 89-runs in a World Cup group-stage fixture.
Javed Afridi suggests a charity IPL vs PSL match
Pakistan Super League franchise owner, on Tuesday, came up with the best suggestion on Twitter. Javed Afridi’s proposal sent some fans wild with excitement. He suggested a charity IPL vs PSL match on Twitter and his suggestion was well received by fans from both nations.
It is cognizant of the fact that IPL and PSL are among the top domestic tournaments in the world. While IPL is the most-watched and decorated league in the world, PSL is also following IPL’s footprints.
Pakistan Super League is also nothing short of entertaining its fans. Both IPL and PSL boast world-class players who entertain their fans at the best scene.
PSL owener Javed Afridi made a tweet from his official Twitter handle asking fans their opinion on organizing COVID-19 fundraiser match between the two fascinating leagues in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) once the IPL comes to a close on November 10.
This is how fans reacted to Javed Afridi’s suggestion
Fans were super duper happy after coming across the PSL franchise owner’s proposal. The majority of the users on Twitter supported the idea and then asked the respective cricket boards of both teams to consider it.
Meanwhile, former Ireland cricketer Niall O’Brien also made an interesting proposal, requesting for a comeback of the now-defunct, Champions League T20 tournament. The organizers terminated the tourney in 2014 due to its poor viewership ratings.
Javed Afridi’s proposal seems very interesting. It would be quite interesting to see how the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Pakistan Cricket Board react to this suggestion. It is possible only when the governments of both nations sort out internal and external matters.
