March 03

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday rejected the proposal of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to ban Pakistan from entering the cricketing world cup, 2019.

Post the Pulwama Attack, BCCI had asked the ICC to bar the Pakistan cricket team from entering the World Cup.

India and Pakistan are scheduled to face-off in the World Cup in Manchester on June 16.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) rejected the proposal saying it has no role to play in matters like these.

The ICC chairman made it clear that the decision to ostracize a nation is taken at the government level and ICC had no rule.

In the wake of the Pulwama attack, in which more than 40 CRPF personnel were killed, the BCCI had urged the world body and its member nations to sever ties with ‘countries which harbours terror.’
