New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s
invitation to Pakistani leaders to watch the Indo-Pak cricket
encounter in Mohali has sent the right message to people of
the two countries, Union Minister Ambika Soni said on Saturday.
"By inviting the Pakistani President and Prime Minister
for the World Cup semi-final, the Prime Minister has taken a
big initiative," Soni told reporters here.
Asked about the traditional cricket rivalry, she said,
"One team will win and one will lose, but they should play in
a sporting manner. As an Indian I will support my team but as
a minister I will say may the best team win."
