Cricket Diplo­macy

Southasia - - Editor's mail - S.M. Fer­nan­dez, Colombo, Sri Lanka

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!
