World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev has stated that it would be best to leave the issue of playing against Pakistan to the Indian Government.
“To play or not to play is something which does not have to be decided by people like us. It has to be decided by the government. It’s better if we don’t give an opinion and leave it to the government and concerned people. Whatever they decide will be in the interest of the nation. We’ll do what they want,” he said at an event in Pune on Friday.
His remarks have come at a time when demands to sever cricketing ties with Pakistan are growing following terror attack on CRPF security personnel which resulted in death of 42 soldiers. The BCCI had requested international cricketing community to boycott nations supporting terror activities.
They even wrote a letter to ICC briefing them about the loss of lives in Pulwama and even urged them to provide full proof security to Indian players and staff during the upcoming World Cup in England and Wales.
