‘Attention On That Match Is Just Different’: Ganguly Explains Why It’s Difficult To Organize IND Vs PAK Matches In India
The India vs Pakistan matches is known to be the most electrifying clashes in the game of cricket. However, it’s an irony that both teams only come across each other in ICC events. They had last played a bilateral series back in 2012-2013 when Pakistan clinched the ODI series 2-1 while the T20Is ended 1-1.
After a hiatus of more than two years, the arch-rivals are set to lock horns in a cricket match. Ahead of the much-anticipated clash, former India captain and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said a humongous demand for tickets makes it difficult to organise matches between these two teams in India. Hence, the board found it easier to conduct the competition in the UAE.
