Pakistan is expected to play their first match against their neighbours, India on Christmas day, 25th December, 2012 and the tour is set to end on January 7, 2013. Three ODIs along with two T20 matches have been scheduled for the tour, with the ODIs to be played in Chennai, Kolkata and Delhi and the shorter format, T20 to be played in Bangalore and Ahemadabad, reported Indian Express. But the exact dates with the location has not been finalised, which is expected to happen soon.
It is due to the tight schedule that the Indian team is facing in the coming months there was no possible window for a Test series, so one just have to be satisfied with the two nations competing in coloured clothing. Something is better than nothing. One hopes that it is another beginning to a great rivalry. It is not only Indian and Pakistan fans that love this rivalry, but people from the world over love the contest between the two teams. It is more than just a mere cricket game.
