Former Australian opener and current Pakistan batting consultant Matthew Hayden hailed the Indo-Pak cricket rivalry as the 'holy grail' of the sporting calendar. Hayden began his coaching stint on an emphatic note as Pakistan defeated arch-rivals India for the first time in World Cup history after perenially ending up on the wrong side of the result over the years. Hayden was effusive in his praise for skipper Babar Azam, complimenting him on leading from the front.
