Pant aims for the stars, Rizwan on bended knee and Bumrah does ballet – snapshots from an unforgettable India-Pakistan clash

No matter where in the world it’s played, India-Pakistan cricket matches offer a spectacle unlike any other. From fans sitting side by side in the stands, to the drumbeats and songs of South Asia, it’s as much a cultural event as it is a sporting contest. And when they’re not engaged in friendly banter, fans on both sides can also tickle their taste buds, with food stalls offering delicacies from the length and breadth of the subcontinent. RevSportz’ Debasis Sen was at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, and these are his snapshots from an unforgettable afternoon, when the two most popular cricket teams on the planet scrapped till the very last ball. For those that were there, Sunday was what memories are made of. Through these pictures, we hope you get a sense of the occasion too.
