Those Were The Days: First Indo – Pak Cricket Test Match 1952

Readers  may like to see the video clip of first test match of India and Pakistan in Delhi , in 1952 , with president Rajendra Prasad watching the match . It was well before the Army took over in Pakistan and 1965 war which General Ayub Khan started to deflect the ire of student agitation against him . Kashmir was always there but  till 1965 but it never spoiled normal neighborly relations  including trade and free movement of people  across the borders . All these restrictions have harmed Pakistan more as is evident from high inflation in the current regime .

Army derives its legitimacy to rule Pakistan and its unusual perks  from the well orchestrated and perceived threat from India . But it is good to remember times when we were not enemies like now and hope for their return  .
