Former India opener Virender Sehwag and legendary Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar will engage in a conversation around their cricket careers, off-the-field stories and the famous India-Pakistan rivalry in the first-ever Colors Cricket Conclave, to be held in Dubai on March 22.

Speaking about the conclave, Sachin Gokhale, Business Head - Middle East & Africa and Head of Business Operations and Corporate Strategy for International Business at IndiaCast said, "Colors Cricket Conclave is our first event for 2018 and we're very excited to introduce this unique cricket concept which will host two sides to the cricket story - i.e. a world-renowned batsman and a legendary bowler from two rival countries.
