Apart from Azharuddin, there are no other ‘stars’ starring in the Indian team, while the Pakistan team is full blooded for the occasion. Wasim Akram, Aamir Sohail, Rashid Latif, Shoib Mahmood, Saeed Anwar and Iijaz Ahmed are expected to play, which means that you can watch some real international cricket in there. For those who are dying to see the magic wand of azhar back in action, this is some sort of consolation.
