CCI made a request to BCCI regarding India vs Pakistan World Cup match

On Thursday, a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a CRPF bus in Pulwama district, killing at least 40 personnel and leaving many critically wounded.

The bus was on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Lethpora town, about 30 km from Srinagar when the attack took place. The entire nation is in a state of shock as well as furious following the gruesome attack.

After the attack India as usual blamed Pakistan for the attack but drama created by Indian government and media was exposed after few hours.

According to details, Indian media falsely reported that Abdul Rashid Ghazi was the mastermind behind the attack in Pulwama which killed at least 44 Indian paramilitary personnel. Reports by Indian media also claimed that Abdul Rashid Ghazi has been traced, while the truth is Ghazi was killed by Pakistani security forces in 2007 in an operation.

Earlier, With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to avenge “each drop of tear shed” in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, Indian Sports channel and cricket website pulls the plug on Pakistan Super League.

Indian sports channel DSport and Cricket website Cricbuzz has stopped the PSL broadcasting and coverage as a protest against the Pulwama attack.

In the wake of the Pulwama terrorist attack on CRPF personnel, DSport has snapped its ties with the Pakistan Super League.  The Indian television channel, which was launched by Discovery Networks Asia Pacific in 2017, was slated to broadcast all the games of the ongoing Pakistan Super League in India.

Now, Cricket Club of India (CCI) secretary Suresh Bafna has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India to not play against Pakistan in the upcoming ICC World Cup.

India vs Pakistan is a high-profile World Cup match at Manchester on June 16. It promises to be the mother of all battles within the war to win cricket’s ultimate glory.

Cricket Club of India (CCI) secretary Suresh Bafna feels Indian cricket should also follow suit and avoid playing against Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup.

“We condemn the terror activities carried out against our army and CRPF personnel. Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports,” he told ANI.

He further said that if Pakistan truly believes they had no part to play in the incident, their Prime Minister should come out in the open and issue a statement on the matter.

“He (Imran Khan) should respond. He is the Prime Minister and if he believes that Pakistan has no role to play in the attack then why is he not coming out openly. He should come out openly. People should know the truth. He is not coming out openly which means that there are Stains in their folds,” said Suresh Bafna.

Earlier, the CCI also decided to cover the portrait of Imran Khan which is present in their Brabourne Stadium headquarters of Mumbai.

The current Pakistan Prime Minister’s portrait was placed in the All rounder restaurant in the club. A photograph of Imran Khan with his national teammates, which was on one of the walls of the club, has also been removed.

A decision to this effect was taken by the club’s managing committee following the Pulwama terror attack which claimed the life of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.
