Off the pitch, Afridi’s ‘India Love’ comment generated a lot of controversy. Former Pakistan skipper Javed Miandad slammed Afridi for his pro-Indian comment. Miandad has been Pakistan’s warrior prince and no one knows it better than Gavaskar.

It is the government’s responsibility to give security to players. As Pakistanis we have felt this before but once we land up, there is no security threat. Kolkata has only sports loving people. They are passionate. Sports should not be a war and the world makes fun of us: Javed Miandad. Both sides of the border people love cricketers irrespective of teams. Indian love Wasim and Imran; Pakistanis love Virat and Raina. I loved to watch Hanif Mohammad bat. I bunked school to watch him bat: Sunil Gavaskar
If you really ask the players, there is intensity on the field but off the field, they are friends. I had great friendship with Zaheer (Abbas) and Miandad. We were great friends: Gavaskar
Pakistan team surely learnt from the past. We have a very good team, very good bowling attack. Afridi has to bat up in the order. He must get maximum overs. He can be a terror: Miandad
It started as a political battle when Pakistan refused to play at Dharamsala. ICC switched the game to Kolkata, governments intervened and security assurances were issued by the state of West Bengal. But while the administrative blocks were finally placed in the right pegs, grievances of the ticket-less fans escalated and reached a level where the sentiment now is that “if they can’t watch the match, then who are the stars playing for?”
Inside Eden, the pitch is the centre of attention beside the form of Indian batsmen who couldn’t chase 126 on turning Nagpur track. The curator here rolled out a flat deck in the game between Pakistan and Bangladesh, where the former scored 200-plus for an easy win. It would have only raised Pakistan’s hopes of first win over India in an ICC event, and the visitors will certainly pull the curtains further down on the hosts should they keep their unbeaten record in Kolkata intact.
