ICC cricket world cup match between India and Pakistan, is among plenty of much-anticipated contests in the tournament. No doubt the India–Pakistan cricket rivalry is one of the most extreme and intensified sports rivalries in the world. The tensed relations between the two nations, resulting from bitter diplomatic relationship and conflict that marked the Partition of British India into India and Pakistan in 1947. And the subsequent Kashmir conflict, laid the foundations for the emergence of an intense sporting rivalry between the two nations who had otherwise shared a common cricketing heritage.
Unfortunately local media channels of both countries are too much busy for creating chaos among peoples for upcoming world cup match, which is to be scheduled on Sunday (June 16). Despite urging cricket lovers to stay calm and to watch this match as only a game, media outlets are increasing tensions by using sentence like, ‘Pak-Bharat Dangal, Clash, Taakra’, etc.
Media of both countries should stop this planned TV drama for getting higher TRP and should play a responsible role to curb hate and sensation which could be lead to unhappy circumstances. Cricket fans should also stay calm during the match in both cases of loss or win. They should keep in mind that cricket is just a game not a war. They should avoid violent acts like agitation and abusive language for Pakistan’s cricket team and even for India. It’s time to behave like a responsible nation.
Evey cricket lover should think about it.
