Pakistan ready to counter India at ICC quarterly meet, says PCB official

This looks great fun — but it's time India stops this and honours our brave martyrs instead

More than 40 CRPF personnel were killed in the Pulwama terror attack which led to demands that India should boycott the Pakistan game in the World Cup in Manchester on June 16.

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".

Opinion has been divided on the calls for boycott with former India captain Sourav Ganguly and senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh wanting the June 16 match to be called off. The BCCI also said it would make a call on a boycott after consultation with the government.

"When the ICC (board members) meet in Dubai on March 2, we will show the BCCI all the security plans which have been put in place for the World Cup", Manohar was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

"The Indian team and the whole set-up was shocked with what happened and are really sad with what happened", Kohli told the media at a press conference in Visakhapatnam. "Whatever the government and the board decide, we will go by that and we will respect that".

Interestingly, the BCCI has shot a letter to the ICC, asking them to provide proper security to the team during the World Cup, but the official said that it was nothing but surprising.

Asked if there was talks of asking foreign players to pick between the IPL and other T20 leagues (namely the Pakistan Super League), the BCCI official said: "During the meeting in New Delhi last Friday, a member of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) did propose the idea, but his proposal was shot down by the other two members". "Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this awful incident".

Some of the reputed global players like AB de Villiers, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Carlos Brathwaite, Colin Ingram, and Andrew Russell are part of the ongoing cricket tournament in Pakistan. "There is no indication that any matches at the World Cup will not go ahead as planned".
