The former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee called the Sourav Ganguly led Indian cricket team before embarking a historic tour of Pakistan. He gave the cricket bat to Sourav Ganguly with the beautiful quote in it "Khel hi nahi, dil bhi jeetiye - shubhkamnaye" (win not only the game, but hearts also - best wishes).

Indian team had won ODI series with 3-2 and Test series with 2-1 in the historic tour.

In this historic tour Virender Sehwag scored 438 runs while Indian spinner Anil Kumble scalped 15 wickets against Pakistan. In the first Test match at Multan Sehwag smashed 309 runs.
