press secretary of HPCA while talking with The Indian Express on Friday The last time India played Pakistan in India in an ICC event was the 2011 World Cup semi-finals at Mohali and the Prime Ministers of both the countries saw the match “We are ready to host dignitaries and the first meeting for arrangements will happen on Sunday” said Sood Although it is a league match the HPCA is anticipating more than the capacity audience of Dharamshala’s 20600-seater cricket stadium In 2005 when Pakistan played India A at the stadium more than 10000 people turned up to watch the likes of Imzamam ul Haq and Shahid Afridi in the warm-up match With a set quota of tickets offered to international fans for every match spectators are expected to arrive from all over the world and neighbouring Pakistan The stadium has hosted three International matches so far: the India-England and India-West Indies one-dayers and the India-South Africa T-20 which was played on October 2 “The stadium has a capacity of 20600 and we also have 19 corporate boxes The tickets will be sold online and some of the tickets will go to the central pool of BCCI also since it is an ICC event Yes we know that fans across the world will want to see the match and we will book 20-25 hotels for BCCI and HPCA guests Apart from online tickets HPCA would also offer tickets for local fans” said Sood The city which is also home of the Tibetan government in exile has 150 hotels including hotels at nearby places like Mcleodganj Kangra apart from Palampur The airport is at Gaggal 15 km from the stadium During the India-West Indies contest last year players from both sides managed to get an audience with the Dalali Lama “We welcome the players Himachal Pradesh is land of gods and Dharamsala has a special meaning for players and the two countries too If they are playing in Dharamshala it will also represent peace which has been always supported by His Holiness Dalai Lama and we certainly hope the issues will be resolved between India and Pakistan through peace It will also be an opportunity for the Tibetan people in Dharamshala to showcase their cause and culture to fans and people from across the world and also to offer hospitality services” said Karma Yeshi Member Parliament Tibetan Parliament in Exile And the district administration is also preparing for the high-security event “Indian team played South Africa on October 2 this year and with the day being a national holiday we saw a packed house The Administration would be looking after the management of the crowd and the other aspects of the match We will soon have a meeting with police officials once HPCA approaches us” said Ritesh Chauhan Deputy Commisioner Kangra And for HPCA it will also be a chance to show the same kind of hospitality which they offered to the Pakistan team during the 2005 series “We have relaid the grass at the stadium recently and the pitches have been also in good condition Pakistan team will have the luxury to train at whatever time they want to train Apart from that special arrangements for Indian food will also be made since they also share the almost the same cuisine as India When they visited us in 2005 they also liked Indian food and some of the players especially asked for Indian food A lot of people then had come to watch players like Inzamam and Afridi” said Sood For all

Giannis Antetokounmpo had more dunks _ 12 _ than his name has consonants and LeBron James became the first player to eclipse 300 points in an All-Star career Being linked to Wilt Chamberlain who had 42 points in the 1962 game only made it more special Davis said “The next one I’m going to try to do is 100 points” Davis said He even outdid Westbrook who had 41 points in just 20 minutes _ which

set Westbrook up for a dunk “OH MY GOD WHAT JUST HAPPENED” Curry shouted on the West bench which moments later broke into celebration Players jumped and threw hands skyward Curry tossing a cupful of ice water onto a smiling Durant amid it all “It was a nice give-and-go man” Westbrook said Added Durant: “It was a great basketball play He was open so I threw him the lob He can jump really high so yeah good play” Kerr said that set the West up for the rest of the night “I guess that’s kind of the beauty of the game” Kerr said “You just let the game break the ice and that play I thought broke the ice” Westbrook scored 12 points _ all on 3s _ in a 63-second span late in the third quarter coming off the bench and firing over and over and over again And then he opened the fourth quarter with
