Here’s a golden chance for cricket lovers to see legends from India and Pakistan on one stage. The Annual Cricket Conclave, ‘Salaam Cricket’ organised by TV news channel Aaj Tak will bring together legends of the game such as Sunil Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin, Harbhajan Singh, Wasim Akram, Younis Khan, Misbah Ul Haq, Habibul Bashar, Muttiah Muralitharan and Abdul Qadir, all under one platform! The cricketers will be coming together to talk about their experiences with the sport and their personal views on the forthcoming Asia Cup that begins from September 15 to September 28 in the UAE.
They will also share candid moments from the sport and their off-field camaraderie, symbolising their dedication and sportsmanship. The Asia Cup will be played between six teams but needless to say, the focus is on the matches to be played between India and Pakistan, the traditional arch-rivals. Since the two teams haven’t really played much cricket together because of the political tensions between the two countries, the tournament assumes much more significance than before. The afore-mentioned conclave, therefore, will be an opportunity for fans to get up, close and personal with their icons from both India and Pakistan at one venue.
This event will comprise a day-long conference with the cricketers and it will be broadcast live on Aaj Tak News Channel on September 17.
