Indo-Pak cricket | We will respect government decision, says Virat Kohli

Pakistan

Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has denied making any statements on India vs Pakistan World Cup 2019 clash, which is in talks due to the boycott call from Indian side.

Ahead of the T20I series against Australia, Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Saturday had said, "Our honest condolences to the families of CRPF soldiers who lost their lives in Pulwama attack". He added that when it comes to playing against Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup, the team will follow the decision made by BCCI. "Whatever the government and the board decide, we will go by that and we will respect that".

India are scheduled to play Pakistan (in the group stage) on June 16, in Manchester.

"Our honest condolences to the families of CRPF soldiers who lost their lives in Pulwama attack", Kohli said in Visakhapatnam ahead of the first T20I against Australia. Ganguly said that, he would rather want the title than worrying about losing two points. "We will take a call on that match at a later date in consultation with the government".

Ninth Labour MP resigns from party
He told the newspaper there was a "culture of extremism, anti-Semitism and intolerance" in the Labour party. Politics is broken and it is so important MPs stand up for the mainstream values we share.

The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has written to the game's global governing body to urge the cricket community to sever ties with any nation from where "terrorism emanates". "I look at it (the letter sent to the ICC) from the point of view that we are able to isolate Pakistan".

Therefore, it may not only be about one India vs Pakistan match. "As far as the other issues are concerned, I will place BCCI's letter and the concerns expressed therein, before the ICC Board". The show "Stadium" discussed all the aspects if India decides not to play against Pakistan. "They can satisfy themselves over the arrangements for the World Cup".

Addressing a joint rally of Congress and NCP at Parli in Beed district of Maharashtra, Pawar, a former president of International Cricket Council as well as BCCI, said Tendulkar is a "Bharat Ratna" and Sunil Gavaskar is another cricket icon who brought laurels to the country.
