Well many would be saying that the game between India and Pakistan is an archetypal of fierce rivalry. Your TV sets will be shouting it loud that the players are hungry beat each other. But it seems that for the sportsman on the ground, it is just another game. In fact, instead of fighting or slugging each other the men in blue and green were seen exchanging candid chats with each other.
Virat Kohli was on Friday seen gifting hi bat to Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir just before the World Twenty20 clash.
Also, warm greetings were exchanged between Shahid Afridi and Virat Kohli. Kohli was having a batting session during India's net practice at the Eden Gardens ground when Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi along with Amir went to greet him.
Similar gestures were viewed when Indian left-handed batsman Suresh Raina and senior Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik were seen hugging and patting each other, shaking hands during optional practice sessions, making it a perfect photo opportunity ahead of their much hyped Super 10 Group 2 match at the Eden Gardens.
Seeing the left-hander, Malik came to greet him as the duo were seen engaged in talks for a few minutes before going back to each other's camp as both the rivals camps had simultaneous session.
