Cold war (!) and cricket |
Md. Rezaul Karma International Relations University of Dhaka
India and Pakistan are two rival countries in South Asia. Since 1947 high tension is prevailing between the two countries over Kashmir. After their independence they have fought three wars over this dispute. At present, both the countries have nuclear weapons. The two countries are now trying to collect all sorts of sophisticated weapons.
But cricket is playing a constructive role in defusing tension. That is really praiseworthy.
