Can BCCI block Pakistan from 2019 World Cup?

India Are Favourites at ICC World Cup 2019 Feels Sourav Ganguly

Not to forget that it is Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) constitutional right to participate in the World Cup being a member of ICC, and no member can stop them. We stick by what the nation wants to do and what the BCCI decides to do and that is basically our opinion. The captain offered his condolences on behalf of the entire Indian team to the families of the martyred soldiers.

"Our honest condolences to the families of the soldiers who lost their lives. From the Indian team and the whole set up, we are really shocked about what happened and really sad about the incident that happened". Kohli's stand is pretty similar to what chief coach Ravi Shastri echoed in an interview to a television channel where he said that the team will "accept whatever decision that the government takes".

Weighing the options of other votes, where BCCI was left red-faced in 2017 after being defeated comprehensively (1-13) on the issue of revenue sharing and ICC constitution revamp, it was also felt that any such pressure will not be advisable without garnering the support of other member boards. We have an elected government in place and when it's such a big matter, let those in power take the call. "I think we will all have to take responsibility for that", he said.

Virgin Galactic carries test passenger to space for the first time
Friday's flight reached a height of at least 240,000 feet, or 45.4 miles, which does not meet the FAA's definition of space. Back then, the mission was notable for being the first crewed spaceflight to take place from American soil since 2011.

But Sachin Tendulkar's comment to play against Pakistan and beat them in the World Cup didn't go down well with the news anchor Arnab Goswami.

Calls have been made in India for the country to pull out of their June 16 World Cup match against Pakistan to protest the bomb attack in Kashmir last week which killed 40 paramilitary troops. "BCCI urges the cricketing community to sever ties with countries from which terrorism emanates", the letter from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on behalf of the BCCI to the ICC stated. As of now, we feel pretty balanced as a side and I don't see any concerns or areas that we need to think about anymore. Kohli himself last played in a T20I in November 2018, as did Jasprit Bumrah, and India have in the past shown no qualms in dropping a multitude of big names. However there are counter-views with another former skipper Sourav Ganguly and one of country's top wicket-takers Harbhajan Singh calling for a boycott of sporting ties with the neighbouring country.
