Condemn Kashmir killings but cannot cancel India-Pakistan match: BCCI
BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla has said that while he condemns attacks on non-Kashmiri civilians in Kashmir, the board cannot back out from its ‘international commitment’.
According to Shukla, in tournaments organised by the International Cricket Council, countries could not back out of commitments.
“We strongly condemn the killings(J&K). Strict action should be taken against terror organisations. As far as the match (T20 WC IND vs PAK) is concerned, under ICC’s international commitments you can’t refuse to play against anyone. You’ve to play in ICC tournaments,” Shukla said.
As per the tournament schedule, India will take on arch-rival Pakistan in their first match of the Super 12 stage on October 24 in Dubai. (KNS)
