The country came to a halt on the evening of March 19 as the two arch rivals – India and Pakistan faced each other in the World Twnety20 Cricket tournament at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Every TV set in the country was tuned in, every smart phone was on some cricket app. At certain times the situation was electric with tension. Prayers were being offered in temples, mosques, churches, gurdwaras for India’s win. India played to win – and win they did. Beating Pakistan by 6 Wickets in a match reduced to 18 overs on account of a late start due to rains. The celebrations were perhaps more than what one will see should India win the Cup !
