In what may be great news for sports lovers in the sub-continent as well as pave way in normalising relation between the two nuclear power neighbours, the cricketing ties between India and Pakistan is all set to resume, thereby putting an end to the long hiatus of five years, wherein the two nations did not visit each other.

But it has evoked mixed reactions.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar criticised the BCCI`s decision to revive the Indo-Pak bilateral cricket ties as he felt Pakistan was not cooperating in the Mumbai terror attacks probe.

While, Pakistan cricket fraternity welcomed the announcement of resumption of bilateral ties with India, saying the on-field contest between the two nations was the "biggest spectacle" in world cricket.

What is your opinion? Will you be looking forward to the series? Do you feel the series is a political move or just plain cricketing tie?
