Magnificent and early Ramzan gift by this unpredictable but surprisingly gifted Pakistan team to the believers world over. Hope this holly month of Ramzan may bring friendship between the two nations forget the past and live like a brothers which will save lot of hard earned money which is being wasted on wars and military buildup by both the countries which can be used for other good purposes.
