PERSONAL : United we stand, divided we fall
When I was a kid, I used to dream about, how great it would've been if India and Pakistan had not been partitioned. How great the two countries would've stood, how formidable they would have been. How united, no team would be able to beat them down.
Obviously, none of these dreams were motivated by socio-economic or political thoughts; they were simply ignited by that common fire that draws the two countries together - Cricket.
So when, this morning, Imran Khan suggested that India and Pakistan should resume cricketing ties and should form a India-Pakistan-XI to challenge the best in the world (Australia), I took a walk down memory lane.
Those dreams have since then given way to cynicism, but somewhere in the corners of the mind, in the crevices of the memory, the "Dream Team" still remains. The Dream Team was a vision back in the late 80s - early 90s, so here they are, without much ado.
I think I'll come up with the new dream team circa 2003 in the new post. Should be a formidable one, in any case.

Ankh: Now, let me see? Yes?
