Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday hoped for sustained peace between India and Pakistan ahead of the clash of the traditional rivals in a World Twenty20 cricket match at the Eden Gardens.
Big B described the match as a “historic game” between the two countries.
“Ami apnar jamaibabu, amar namaskar o pronam neben (I am your son-in-law, please take my regards.) Thank you Sourav and CAB to invite me here to this historic venue to wintess the historic game of cricket between the two countries. I wish all the best for the game. May the better team win. I also thank Mamatadi, for very thoughtfully giving us the symbol of peace between the two nations. May the peace prevail between India and Pakistan,” Bachchan said,” Bachchan said after he was felicitated before the match.
Indian captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bowl first against Pakistan at the rain-curtailed World T20 match in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens.
