Are you a fan of India-Pakistan cricket?
You know, those teams that don't play each other when their countries aren't on talking terms
The sight of Umar Gul bowling to Sachin Tendulkar:
Is for sore eyes
Is nothing compared to the sight of Dale Steyn bowling to Kevin Pietersen
Is as beautiful as the sight of track-one diplomacy
If the two teams sledge each other in the series in December, you will say:
It's what these mid-ranked teams do
No harm done; it's how men charged with national responsibilities blow off steam
It's because of the intensity of the situation
What if there's a ball-tampering incident?
You can bet it won't be an innocent scenario of accidentally stepping on the ball while trying to kick it
It will add to the unpredictability that marks encounters between the teams
It will blow up into a mega controversy unless those with years of experience in strategic negotiations and wheeling-dealing are brought in to intervene
What are your thoughts on the 1999 Chennai Test?
It was followed soon by the Kargil War and hence is a lesson that cricket cannot always promote peace. You need leaders for that
Not nearly as memorable as the 1998 Old Trafford Test
A match made in heaven
What is your favourite India-Pakistan moment?
So many to choose from! Zaheer Abbas' doubles, Kapil's eight-for in Lahore, Miandad's six, World Cup meetings, Irfan's hat-trick...
The moment people stop talking about them and start talking about real teams
When the prime ministers of the two countries sat down to watch the 2011 World Cup semi in Mohali
How do you feel when cricket between the two teams is suspended because of political reasons?
Relieved that the drama and hype can now be reserved for cricket that actually matters
Outraged at what I'm missing because of incompetent, egotistical politicians
Harried at the thought of all the jingoistic speeches to be written, press interviews to be done and rallies to be led
Would you like to see India play cricket in Pakistan?
Yes, nothing would make me happier
As long as I'm included in the entourage
Let them play wherever they want to. As long as I don't have to watch it
What sort of statement would you want the two captains to make ahead of the series?
"Our sides are not as great as everybody seems to think we are"
"We'd like to thank, and take photographs with, the people who made this series possible"
"Let's have the most fiercely contested series ever"
What sort of attitude would you like to see from the players of the two sides?
Don't give an inch
We need to learn from the best
Similar to mine: always ready with an answer to every probing question
