So much has been written about the resumption of Indo-Pak talks and the stakes involved in this cross border exchange that not much sounds a new development. The article ‘Cricket Diplomacy’, pub- lished in the May issue of SouthAsia, however, was a good change. It was a badly-needed breath of fresh air and a very interesting read. The writer’s well-researched facts and well-formed opinion broke all the monotony that one feels while reading articles on Indo-Pak diplomatic ties. It is true that nothing has come as close as cricket to bridge or divide Pakistan and India. Be it the recent Mohali spirit or previous games, cricket has often come to our rescue. I hope both India and Pakistan continue the Mohali spirit in the future and settle their differences on the political table, leaving all the action for the cricket pitch!
