An India vs Pakistan game is for sure one of the biggest rivalries in the field of cricket. History is a telling example of what it means to win the encounter for both the sides. While winning the game felicitates them with all the possible love and attention, losing, on the other hand, subjects them to intense criticism.

Such is the hype of an India vs Pakistan game that not only the tickets get sold in quick time, many also bunk their classes or miss their offices to watch the game if it happens on a week day. Keeping all this in account, ICC always tries its level best to schedule the India vs Pakistan games on week offs, in case the two teams meet each other in the ICC tournaments.

With so much at stake, one could easily conclude how much important it is for the teams to win the contest. While many plead from their players to win the game for the nation, some put their own efforts and do various prayers wishing a victory for their side. Amongst all, a video is going viral on social media wherein Jammu & Kashmir BJP chief Ravinder Raina could be seen conducting a havan of goddess Durga for India's victory over Pakistan in the upcoming game between the sides at the T20 World Cup on Sunday (October 24).

Here is the video:
