After Pulwama terror attack, in which at least 40 CRPF were martyred, the BCCI had urged the ICC to “sever ties” with countries which harbor terror, indirectly indicating to Pakistan.
But ICC has not paid heed to BCCI’s request to sever ties with countries from which “terrorism emanates”.
“There was no chance that anything like that would have happened. The ICC chairman made it clear that the decision to ostracize a nation is taken at the government level and ICC had no rule. The BCCI knew it all along but still took a chance,” a BCCI official told PTI.
In wake of the Pulwama terror attack,, there were calls for boycotting Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup.
India are slated to take on Pakistan in the ICC showpiece event. They will take on each other in Manchester on June 16.
