Cricket World Cup: India vs. Pakistan

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

The prime ministers of India and Pakistan are sitting side by side today at the Cricket World Cup semi-final match between the two countries. It's an occasion which is being seen as an opportunity for the two nations to repair relations. India broke off relations with Pakistan in 2008, after it blamed Pakistani militants for attacks on Mumbai, which killed 160 people. Pakistan denied any involvement. This is probably the most watched cricket game ever with a billion people watching the game around the world. Aleem Maqbool, BBC Islamabad correspondent, reports on whether this match will help India-Pakistan relations.
