The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will follow government instructions on the matter of playing with Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup. India and Pakistan are scheduled to play in the marquee event on June 16.
According to a report in India Today, ICC has hinted that the governing body of Indian cricket will lose the proposal of keeping Pakistan out of the World Cup.
The officials of BCCI and members of COA met in New Delhi to decide on the issue but couldn’t come to one conclusion.
“16th June [India vs Pakistan match in World Cup] is very far away. We will take a call on that much later and in consultations with the government,” COA chairman Vinod Rai said.
“We’ll write to ICC expressing our concerns about attacks that took place & that security of players, officials & everybody else must be taken care of. We’re telling cricketing community that in future we must sever ties with nations from where terror emanates,” he added.
BCCI will also consult Indian players and then decide whether to play against Pakistan or not.
