Nothing gets bigger in this part of the globe than a cricket match featuring India and Pakistan. The rivalry would be renewed in Wednesday’s World Cup semi-final in Mohali in Punjab.

Fans of India pose ahead of the cricket World Cup 2011 quarter-final match between India and Australia in Ahmedabad March 24, 2011. REUTERS/Amit Dave/FilesPrime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani will watch the match in what is billed as “cricket diplomacy”.

According to a newspaper report, airport authorities have received requests from business tycoons, including Mukesh Ambani and fellow industrialist Vijay Mallya, to allow them to park their private jets in Chandigarh.

While politicians and Bollywood celebrities will also be in tow, there is a growing sense of anger among the ticket-seeking fans who complained of large-scale black-marketing.

As of now Indian batting line up is considered as the strongest of all teams…..Final match (IND vs. SL) will also be very exciting. SL has the best balling line…
