The India vs Pakistan match at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 had more to offer than the rains and the drama over Virat Kohli’s wicket. The Old Trafford Cricket Ground was covered with a sea of people dressed in blue. If that had happened in a similarly named stadium just a few paces from this one, Manchester United fans would be crying. But more importantly, the match saw a collection of legendary cricketers all bunched together in one place.
Sachin Tendulkar, a legend himself, caught up with two other stalwarts of the game.
