THE Indian cricket team set out for Pakistan in 2004 on a tour that would test two nations with the weight of the past and the burden of expectation. As it happened, the cricketing rivals defeated the naysayers, coming together to deliver a stunning moment not just in the context of sport, but history. As thousands of Indians met thousands of Pakistanis for the first time in their lives, an exchange unsurpassed since the bloody numbers of partition, that 2004 summer bloomed with hope and brotherhood. One of the best-loved cricket books, Pundits from Pakistan will always remind us of what was and what could be.
