The cricketing ties between India and Pakistan have been limited in recent years due to political tensions, with bilateral series becoming a rare occurrence. The last bilateral series between the two nations was in 2012-13, featuring T20Is and ODIs, while their last Test series meeting dates back to 2008.

The documentary series on Netflix promises to provide a comprehensive and captivating narrative, capturing the essence of this iconic rivalry that transcends the boundaries of the cricket field.
