Cricket, is known as 'the gentleman's game.'

While the India versus Pakistan cricket sees bitter rivalry every time the World Cup rolls around, the game doesn't necessarily have to be that way.

The spirit of the game may be competitiveness, and that shone through in the ICC World Cup 2019 India versus Pakistan match yesterday, but there was also another essence captured: the one of cricket.

A Canadian couple who were at the stands at the Manchester stadium were sporting an unique jersey to express this sentiment of cricket: a half-and-half stitched jersey of India and Pakistan.

The couple, who were from India and Pakistan and wore a stitched jersey, one half for India, and one half for Pakistan. The reason behind it? The point of the celebration of the game was cricket, and not the bitter rivalry.

A picture posted on Twitter, shows this unity.

While people may have come up with memes and mean comments to roast each other during the match, this picture captures the actual essence of cricket - the point should be cricket, and not the feuding rivalry.

True spirit of the game.
