India and Pakistan to meet in Glasgow

India and Pakistan are to play a special one-day match in Glasgow on July 3 at the invitation of the Prince of Wales. It is hoped the game will raise up to £2.5 million for charities in the UK and on the subcontinent.

The match, which is being played for the Friendship Cup, is being staged to commemorate the 60th anniversary of India and Pakistan's independence. It is being organised by the British Asian Trust and up to 5,000 tickets are on sale through an online ballot.

"This will be an amazing occasion as both our nations have not met outside the World Cup or the ICC Trophy in the United Kingdom," Lalit Modi, vice-president of India's board, told the BBC. "With such large Indian and Pakistani-origin populations it will be a fantastic opportunity to play such a match in aid of such a wonderful cause.

"The game was His Royal Highness's idea and we are pleased that together with Cricket Scotland we have been able to put this into our tour of the United Kingdom."

Attack at Glasgow airport does not worry the boards

India-Pakistan ODI to go ahead despite security concerns

July 2, 2007

The security situation in Glasgow after a car crashed into the main terminal of the city's airport on July 1 has not worried the Indian board (BCCI) or the team, Niranjan Shah, the BCCI secretary, said. India and Pakistan are to play a one-day game at Glasgow on Tuesday, the proceeds of the match going to the Prince of Wales charity trust.

"We are not going to be worried by the situation in Glasgow," Shah told Hindustan Times. "We will leave it to the authorities over there to judge the situation and advise us."Security is the responsibility of the home board and I'm sure they will take the necessary steps to ensure safety. The match will go on without any problem."
The Pakistan board (PCB) also confirmed that the security arrangements were satisfactory and that the match would go ahead as scheduled. "A match against India of any nature is always keenly anticipated and we are expecting a big crowd in for the match despite the security alert in Glasgow," Zakir Khan, the PCB director of cricket operations, told cricketnext.com. "We are just keeping our fingers crossed the rains don't hit the match."

The crash - suspected to be an attempted terrorist attack - has put Britain on its highest state of security alert and Glasgow airport remained closed overnight. But Shah said that the Indian team would fly into the city from Belfast, where they completed a series-win over South Africa on Monday, July 2.

Well the huge interest shown in this match is a part of cricketing culture - the neutral venue also outside of Asia gives it the extra significance.

If you would like to call discussing cricket's greatest rivalry involving the hopes and aspirations of million of fans 'Exaggeration', then I need not say anything more.

I am saying the truth, and cricket's greatest rivalry is the Ashes and if it wouldn't have been for West Indies' slump, then the Wisden and Lillie-SobersTrophy would still be more significant than an Ind-Pak one. Large numbers can't redefine history. And by the way, this thread was opened 5 days before the scheduled fixture. Even the match threads of Bangladesh World Cup matches weren't introduced 5 days in advance, but this is only a one-off encounter which has been organized for charity.

I agree to a certain extent that these matches are over hyped ..but Isar dont you think that cricket should come out of its Anglo-saxon grip hold..

Truly the Ashes are a drag where 99% (except the miracle of last series in eng)of the time the Aussies batter the English black and blue and the only thing that remains to be seen is how badly the English loose.

We (and cricket) needs to get out of the myophic vision on the English (and there ilk)

India and Pakistan play a one-off ODI at Glasgow on Tuesday. The two teams last met in a two-match series in 2006 at Abu Dhabi, with both teams winning a match apiece.

Since 2003, the teams have played 23 ODI matches, with both sides claiming almost an equal share. However, the overall record favours Pakistan, having emerged victorious in 64 of the 108 encounters between the two teams, with four matches ending in no-results.

India v Pakistan head-to-head Record Matches India Pakistan Tie No Result

India will go into this match with one advantage, having beaten South Africa at Belfast to win the Future Cup series. Pakistan lack match practice, their game against Scotland on Sunday was washed out.

may be pakistan lost this time b/c of lack of match practice
