Pulwama attack: Kapil Dev has his say on India-Pakistan World Cup clash

Veteran cricketer Kapil Dev opined that it is ideal to abandon it to the Union Government to take a choice on whether India should play against Pakistan in the up and coming cricket World Cup. 

"To play or not to play is something which does not need to be chosen by individuals like us. It must be chosen by the administration. It's better in the event that we don't give a conclusion and abandon it to the legislature and concerned individuals. Whatever they choose will be in light of a legitimate concern for the country. We'll do what they need," he said at an occasion in Pune on Friday. 

Kapil's comment comes when various requests are being advanced for India to disjoin cricketing ties with Pakistan in the wake of the obnoxious fear assault that killed 40 CRPF staff in South Kashmir's Pulwama locale on February 14. 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had on Friday asked the worldwide cricketing network to disjoin ties with nations from which fear based oppression exudes, in a reasonable reference to Pakistan. 

The letter, sent by the Supreme Court-named Committee of Administrators (CoA) for the benefit of BCCI to the International Cricket Council (ICC), expressed: "Most nations from which the individuals from the ICC hail (counting the UK) have firmly censured this fear monger assault and communicated solidarity with India." 

Despite the fact that the letter did not name any nation from which "psychological warfare radiates", the reference was plainly to Pakistan from where dread gatherings have been propelling assaults in India. 

With respect to forthcoming World Cup, the BCCI said that in the wake of the Pulwama dread assault, the Indian board "fears for the wellbeing and security of players and match authorities" partaking in the worldwide game. 

Pakistan-based fear outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) has asserted obligation regarding the February 14 dread assault.
