Amid calls to forfeit World Cup match against Pakistan, government sources have warned against taking any hasty decision.
After the terror attack in Pulwama, which resulted in the death of 42 security personnel, there have been calls not only to boycott the World Cup game, but also to seek Pakistan’s ban from the event.
Speaking to NDTV, government sources claimed that it could prove costly for India. “We should not get isolated in order to isolate Pakistan,” the sources told NDTV.
“By not playing against Pakistan, we will be giving them a walk-over,” they said. “Punitive action can be taken against us,” the sources further added. “ICC can even impose ban on BCCI.
“There is still lot of time. We should not react in hurry,” they further added.
