Yes, it is true and we can confirm that. The India versus Pakistan game played yesterday at Edgbaston in Birmingham in ICC Champions Trophy garnered record attendance for any India versus Pakistan clash, just goes to show India-Pakistan games are widely watched and are extremely popular. Edgbaston recorded an attendance of 24,156, which is the highest recorded at any India versus Pakistan match at any venue. Considering it is a neutral venue, still breaches records just shows that cricket has not lost any popularity and people still love the sport, especially if it is India v Pakistan.

It also shows how much the subcontinental countries love the sport of cricket. Mostly the crowd present yesterday was a NRI crowd but there were people who traveled all the way to UK to watch the two cricketing giants lock horns.

It actually seemed like a festival was being celebrated, these are scenes from just outside the ground.

These are scenes when the crowd went ballistic after Virat Kohli got to his 50.

The Pakistani fans were also present to root for their team.

And then there were the crazy Indian fans who are spread all across the globe. Indian fans would be praying that India are able to defend its ICC Champions Trophy title which they won way back in 2013.
