India, Pak gear up for twin ties in Twenty20 WC
Set to play each other in back to back games, the women's and men's cricket teams of arch rivals India and Pakistan hoped for good contests. Captain of the Indian women's team, Mithali Raj, said in Colombo today that she backed her male counterparts to do well in their game, which will be played on Sunday. Speaking of the women's game, which is to be played on October 01, Raj said that she looked forward to face an improved Pakistan team, after their previous encounter three years ago. Her Pakistani counterpart, Sana Mir, said that while she hoped the two south Asian neighbours could resume bilateral cricketing ties, all the players could do was to make recommendations.
