There have been a lot of tensions between India and Pakistan ever since a Pakistan sponsored terror attack hit Pulwama, in which at least, 40 CRPF Jawans were martyred. There have even been calls for boycotting Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup that begins from May 30 in England and Wales.
Former Indian player, Mohammed Kaif who was appointed as the assistant coach of Delhi Capitals, said, “Virat Kohli has said that government is going to take a call on that. It’s not about players or BCCI. They have said that the government will take a decision. So we’ll have to wait and see.”
BCCI had requested ICC to sever ties with countries which harbour terror. But ICC turned down the request. “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.
India and Pakistan are set to clash on June 16 in Manchester in the ICC showpiece event.
