India vs Pakistan: 5 things you need for the big match

The stage is set. The flags are out. India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in their opening game of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup at Adelaide. Can you feel the tension in the air? You should. Because, it’s not just cricket, it’s war! And this time, we #WontGiveItBack. Geddit?

So let’s start prepping for the big game. After all, what’s a cricket match without the right kind of atmosphere? Here are 5 things you will need before, during and after the IndiaPakistan encounter. Fasten your seat belts, an epic ride awaits!


1. An alarm clock with a really loud ringtone.
Guess what? It’s a Sunday! A day that usually begins only after 12 PM for most people. And why not? After having toiled for 5/6 days a week, Sunday toh banta hai! But not on February 15, nope. The build-up to one of the most intense cricket matches starts at 7:30 AM sharp in India. Set your alarms, open those sleepy eyes and catch Big B along with our experts in the commentary box!


2. Food, of course.
Picture this: Virat Kohli is on the brink of his hundred, Pakistani fielders are closing in to save the single, the bowler is all set to run in. Just as he takes his first step, a loud voice can be heard in the background, "Move your lazy self and get food from the kitchen!" And bam! You miss that one epic moment you’ve been waiting for. Just get all your food on the table once and for all. You don’t want to miss a single moment, do you?
3. Friends for company.
Where’s the fun in watching a match like India vs Pakistan without the cheering and jeering? Invite your cricket-crazy friends who are just as excited for this super Sunday showdown. The more the merrier! We doubt there will be any Pakistani fan or supporter in your group, but just in case there’s one, you know what to do. It’s us against them. Bring it on!


4. Sound system, jerseys and everything else.
The best thing about watching a cricket match at home is that you don’t really have to dress up for the world. Pair those pajamas or shorts with the Team India jersey (or the famous Tendulkar tee) and create a stadium-like atmosphere at home. Tell your friends to do so too. Pump up the volume and enjoy the sweet sound of bat and ball!
5. A box of tissue paper, or two.
The loss of a wicket is going to affect people on both sides of the border. With two of the most aggressive teams facing off under pressure, we never know what’s in store for us. Keep those tissues handy, it’s not over till it’s over. Only time will tell if those tears are of joy or sorrow. Don’t hold back, just let them flow!
