Sunday Funday events organized by MA&UD, GHMC, and HMDA on Tank Bund and Charminar have been big hits with city dwellers. Crowds swell in large numbers to these events to enjoy their Sunday evenings with cultural events and shopping at the stalls arranged. But then, the event on October 24th is a complete contrast.
There is not much crowd at Tank Bund as well as Charminar because people have decided to stay indoors and watch the high-octane India Vs Pakistan match. Team India has taken on arch-rivals Pakistan in ICC T20 World Cup. Both the teams were taking head-on after many years. So, people have enthusiastically watched the match.
While that has impacted the Sunday Funday event, the match has been disappointing. Pakistan has comprehensively defeated team India. Batting first and after an initial struggle, Team India just managed to put up 151 on board. Pakistan chased the score effortlessly with all their ten wickets in hand thanks to sloppy bowling and fielding. This is the first time Pakistan has beat Team India in any World Cup match.
