On Saturday, Ahmedabad won't just be the epicentre of Indian cricket, but world cricket, with 132,000 people - a decent chunk being celebrities, industrialists, politicians, friends of politicians and, of course, cricket administrators - congregating at what they say is the world's biggest cricket stadium to witness a match that makes the cricket economy - bilateral non-relations notwithstanding.
No other team in cricket history will have a louder crowd than what India will get in nine hours. They, of course, start as strong favorites. The famous Pakistani bowling has to show up for them to have a chance at an upset. Afridi and Rauf will have to make the breakthroughs. Also, the winner of this match will definitely make the semi-finals.
