'Sarhad Paar': a curtain raiser to the India-Pak series on Star Sports

On the eve of the India-Pakistan cricket series, Star Sports is telecasting the third Sportsline Special - a curtain raiser to the historic series titled 'Sarhad Paar' on March 1, 2004 at 7:30 p.m.

The Sportsline news team will travel to Kashmir and the LOC and talk to current and ex cricketers from India and Pakistan, as India embarks on the tour of Pakistan.

Anchored by Sujata Padmanabhan and shot in the backdrop of Kashmir, the programme reflects not only how it generates passions that can easily put the much-talked about Australia-England rivalry to shame, but also how it can help build bridges between soldiers and common villagers living across the huge barbed wire fences.

The 24-minute special will also air views on the importance of this historic series from Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, pace bowlers Zaheer Khan, Laxmipati Balaji and Irfan Pathan, newcomers Rohan Gavaskar and Akash Chopra, veterans Ajit Wadekar, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, E A S Prasanna and Laxman Sivaramakrishnan and Pakistani cricketers like Ezaj Ahmed, Saeed Anwar and Mustaq Mohammed.

Statistically driven, the programme also reflects on the two teams' peculiar advantages and disadvantages, both in the five one days starting March 13 and the three test series, starting March 28. Some interesting aspects of Indo-Pakistan cricket would also be covered in the special.

India and Pakistan have played 47 Tests against each other in 51 years, with the first one played at Delhi in October 1952. The March-April 2004 series is the first Indian tour of Pakistan since 1989. The last visit by Pakistan to India was in 1999.
