Indian cricket team had not been visited Pakistan since 1989 to play test cricket, in the same series Sachin Tendulkar made his international debut. In 1997 India went to Pakistan to play only ODI cricket. 

In 2004 Indian tour of Pakistan has been planned according to ICC Schedule. But at the same time, the political relation between India and Pakistan was very poor. In 2004 Pervez Musharraf was Prime minister of Pakistan thus Indian government opposed the tour of Pakistan. At that time Lal Krishna was the Home Minister of India, LK Advani was too much against the tour by concerned with the security of Indian players and media.

But Atal Bihari Vajpayee thinks different on Pakistan tour. He was the person who strongly believes that cricket is the only media which helps to improve the relationship between India and Pakistan. The tour which is nearly canceled that he makes possible. Vajpayee ji convinced LK Advani and home ministry of India then asked to BCCI about their interest for Pakistan tour and he successfully convinced his government and arranged the tour.

At the time Indian team takes off to Pakistan from Delhi airport, Vajpayee ji arranged a program and gave best wishes with the great message by writing on the bat; he writes in Hindi " Khel hi Nahi dil bhi jitihe! Shubhkamnaye " 

This was the tour where Virendra Sehwag become 'Sultan of Multan'. Viru hits 309 runs in 375 balls with 39 fours and 6 sixes. Indian captain Rahul Dravid made his highest score of his test career 270 runs with the help of 34 fours and only six. It was the first time where India won both Test and ODI series.

Vajpayee ji was the only Indian prime minister who interferes in cricket and gives such wonderful opportunity to Indian players and Indian fans to celebrate the great victory.
