India Pak cricket is back again

India Pakistan cricket rivalry would begin on January 13th

Level of excitement and intensity between Indo Pak matches has mellowed down to a large extent but for cricket aficionados this would be absorbing contest between pace bowling and quality batting skills.

First hour of the first test would be psychological war between these two teams and will set the tone for the rest of the series. Lahore is witnessing coldest winter in the recent years and with foggy conditions, stinging pace deliveries will not just test Indian batsman but slip fielders too. There is no doubt Pakistan will choose to bowl if they win the toss. What would India do? Predictably they would also bowl but they might go otherwise to prove that their batting is strong enough for pacey wicket, as they did last time when they toured Pakistan and miserable by the end of the first day.

One thing is sure, Chappell would spring a surprise or two for Shoaib Akhtar and Sami. If they manage to derail the speed express, that would rattle pace battery.
