Cricket, the sport of the country – where the national team is highly looked up to, and the national team members are treated as super heroes. Regardless of the ups and downs during World Cup’s, T20’s, test matches and other tournaments, the country has always supported the team and the sport.
Keeping in mind the current situation of the economy, the energy crisis, and other problems for the earning man/woman, all is forgotten, whenever a cricket tournament is about to begin. Where everyone is busy looking for the Pakistani flag amongst all the teams registered. Especially now, with the T20 World Cup right around the corner, everyone is up and busy counting the days, getting ready with their face paint, their jerseys and of course a place to watch the matches together with their friends/family.

Pepsi Pakistan has always been closely associated with both cricket and music of our country, at times uniting both of them together. This time, as we all know the t20 Cricket World Cup is just around the corner so Pepsi have successfully managed to rope in pop music veterans ‘Noori’ to sing their official song for the event.
Gautam Gambhir, 29, is an ace Indian cricket batsman who will be tying the knot with New-Delhi based Natasha Jain by November. The wedding is said to be strictly arranged where Gautam’s family introduced him to the 27 year old Jain earlier this year
Gautam wanted the wedding to be as simple as possible but since he is a big fan of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, he wanted him to perform at his wedding. Unfortunately, because of the visa issues, Rahat’s presence will be unlikely told a friend of Gautam to the media.
India won the match by 29 runs. Congratulations to the Indian team. It was a well deserved victory. Pakistani Skipper Shahid Afridi showed us that a team that stands no where could come up to semi finals only because of a good captain who got this together as a unit. Pakistan Team exceeded all our expectations. Afridi deserves kudos for so masterfully captaining our team, he did the most awesome job of captaining a team that had lost hopes. He showed amazing sportsmanship. A big round of applause and so much respect for him. And what a closing speech! No words for Afridi, the way he accepted the defeat gracefully, he is the real winner! He floored us with his speech and he apologized for what? He took the team this far on his own from utter pits. Afridi – you showed Grace and Dignity and won our hearts. What a leader of men! I wished we could have won but Allah wants us to see this and will help us to do better and achieve more with more effort and determination and support from every Paki
