    The ICC will never remove Pakistan from the WOrld Cup and I don't think Indians are dumb enough to ask anyway. This is probably just a media report out of nothing.

    But India can play the IPL with just local players and still generate more revenue than probably all other boards. They have the biggest market and they now it.

    Indian bowlers should stop trying to bowl reverse swing, that would send a strong message.
    No doosra for the off spinners, that would send 6 strong conventional off spin messages in one over!
    What next, stop eating with Pakistanis, stop talking to fellow Pakistani commentators.

    Honestly, this sound closer to being racist.

    No. You feel that way because the media only highlights the ones who give comments which falls within this narrative.

    There are people like sidhu. Have you seen interview of Farooq abdullah who is a strong supporter of Kashmir merging with India. These people either get bullied or never get the coverage. Pls check on barkha dutt. Most just prefer to keep quiet.

    'India could be fined or banned if they don't play Pak in World Cup'

    Pulling out of the World Cup so that India does not play against Pakistan, is not that easy as every tournament has its own rules, said former Indian cricketer and Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Chetan Chauhan on Wednesday.

    "Government should advice the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) as every tournament has its own rules. Since a lot of countries would be participating (ICC members), we might have to face consequences, bear the losses or face two or three year ban if India withdraws or does not play against Pakistan," Chauhan said.

    Just as I predicted they are already making excuses about why they will have to play the World Cup game because ICC tournaments don't contradict their 'principles'

    “Play and defeat Pakistan”- Sunil Gavaskar on India’s World Cup clash against their arch-rivals

    After the Pulwama attacks on Thursday, February 14, calls of boycotting India’s marquee encounter against Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup are doing the rounds. The two age-old antagonists are scheduled to lock horns on Sunday, June 16 at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

    The teams haven’t played bilateral cricket ever since Pakistan’s tour of India in 2012-13. 40 soldiers were martyred in the terror attack, carried out by Pakistan-based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammad with the help of suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar, a school dropout. Three Jaish terrorists were also killed in Pulwama on Wednesday, February 18 in a 16-hour encounter

    In the meantime, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also looking forward to having a chat with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) surrounding the most-awaited clash in the mega event, scheduled to start on May 30 in England and Wales.

    Other countries won’t agree
    In the meantime, Sunil Gavaskar, the former Indian cricketer, feels that calling off the match won’t do any good to the tournament by any means as the other teams may not agree to the same. The 69-year-old didn’t mince any words in saying that beating Pakistan would be the best way forward.

    “Pushing for boycotting Pakistan in the World Cup wont work, other countries won’t agree. And if we don’t play them in the WC, we are the losers. Play them and defeat them is the best way..,” Gavaskar was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with India Today.

    Players like Harbhajan Singh reckons that cricketing ties between the two nations should be cancelled on an immediate basis. For the off-break bowler, country comes from cricket. Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin also went down the memory lane and talked about India’s match against Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup amidst the tensions of the Kargil War.

    Still seeking international ban on Pakistan despite ICC snub, says CoA chief

    Committee of Administrators (COA) chairman Vinod Rai Thursday said the BCCI is still seeking an ICC ban on countries that harbour terrorism despite a recent rejection but was non-committal on whether India will boycott Pakistan at the World Cup.

    At its board meeting in Dubai last week, the International Cricket Council (ICC) dismissed the BCCI’s request to sever ties with countries from where terrorism emanates though the Indian Board did not make a specific reference to Pakistan.

    India and Pakistan are scheduled to play in the World Cup on June 16 and Rai said due process will be followed before the final decision is taken on boycotting the high-octane clash in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack. “Let the time come. It is still four months away. We have expressed our concerns (over security) and they (ICC) said yes, ‘security will be tightened’ and everything else,” said Rai after a COA meeting here.

    Rai insisted that the ICC has not shot down BCCI’s request of banning Pakistan from international cricket.

    “The letter was placed. It clearly says Pakistan. It is a process which goes slow. Have we been able to boycott any of the countries in the Security Council? The process goes on slowly. We have started a process,” said the former CAG.

    In the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, in which more than 40 CRPF personnel were killed, the BCCI, in a letter to the ICC, urged the world body and its member nations to sever ties with countries which harbour terror.

    The India-Pakistan matter will be among the issues the COA will discuss with ICC chairman Shashank Manohar in Mumbai later this month.

    The long pending issue of BCCI becoming World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) compliant will also be discussed after the ICC expressed an urgent need to settle the matter. “The (ICC) Board unanimously acknowledged its desire to remain WADA compliant and committed to working in partnership with the BCCI, WADA and India NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency) to resolve the issue as a matter of urgency,” the ICC said last week.

    While the BCCI is not WADA compliant, the ICC and its other members are. If the BCCI doesn’t fall in line, the ICC faces the risk of being deemed WADA non-compliant, jeopardising its aim to take cricket to the Olympics by 2028.

    “A lot of issues will be discussed with the ICC chairman including the one concerning WADA,” added Rai.

    Feud between Sourav Ganguly-BJP continues over Imran Khan’s portrait at Eden Gardens

    Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has reiterated he would not remove the poster of Pakistani PM and former captain Imran Khan’s portrait from the clubhouse of the iconic Eden Gardens as the row just keeps on getting extended. In the wake of the Pulwama attack, which was carried out by Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed and had claimed the lives of 44 CRPF personnel, the Indian cricketing fraternity had taken several measures to further distance itself from Pakistan. Removing the photos and other memorabilia of Pakistani cricketers was one such step.

    Mumbai’s Cricket Club of India (CCI) had started it all by covering Imran Khan‘s image at its ‘Porbandar all rounders’ restaurant. Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association, Punjab Cricket Association, Karnataka State Cricket Association and Rajasthan Cricket Association soon followed suit by removing Pakistan cricket related material from their stadium galleries. Later the BCCI had pulled down memorabilia and photos of Pakistani cricketers from its headquarters in Mumbai.

    However, the Cricket Association of Bengal went against the anti-Pakistan sentiment in the country and decided not to take off Imran Khan’s portrait. There was a big demonstration from Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) workers outside the stadium last month but it did not make much difference. CAB president Ganguly has now once again made it clear he would ‘stick to his earlier position’ which was not to remove the portrait.

    Many see this as a political fight. The fight between BJP and Ganguly is seen by many as a proxy one between the BJP and Trinamool Congress, the ruling party in the state. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee had backed Ganguly for the post of CAB president four years ago.

    Respect for Ganguly has increased. He understands the value of having 'role-models' for budding cricketers.
