The great Game: Ind V Pak, Pak to bat first

India win the toss and decide to bat first

 

 

The Oval looks absolutely amazing, packed house in the great game, at the home of cricket, glorious sun and the biggest rivalry in world cricket.  Seas of blue and green, flags being waved everywhere, drums pounded on as the teams walk out for the national anthems.

The ground is full of seas of blue and green, flags being waved everywhere, drums pounded on as the teams walk out for the national anthems.

A minute’s silence first, in commemoration of the victims of global tragedies in Sri Lank, Bangladesh, Manchester and of course the most recent fire in Kensington.

This is Pakistan’s first appearance in a 50-over global final since the 1999 World Cup in England. They arrived at this tournament as the lowest seed of the eight teams. India were always amongst the favourites from the start and looked fantastic throughout the tournament.

Game on!
