India is in dilemma: Enjoy the extravaganza or not disrespect our martyrs
While we haven’t overcome the madness of IPL and Lok Sabha Elections 2019, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is here and we are very excited. We celebrated the new term of India’s new government and Mumbai’s triumph in IPL with utmost happiness in recent days.
Lots of debates took place over breaking all kind of ties against Pakistan
The heart-breaking Pulwama attack took lives of 40 CRPF personnel on 14th Feb and left us in grief. There were lots of debates over breaking all kind of ties against Pakistan. Mainstream media talked about India’s take on World Cup match against Pakistan in World Cup 2019. The pressure created by Indian Media compelled BCCI to write ICC for the exclusion of such teams which supports terrorism. ICC rejected the request and India is scheduled to play against Pakistan in World Cup 2019 on 16th June at Manchester.
Currently, India is busy in celebrating the win against Australia in their second match of the World Cup. Indian is scheduled to play against New Zealand next. Once the country gets out of the hangover of the Yuvraj’s Singh retirement, discussions will definitely roll over on Indo-Pak Clash. There will be panel discussions on Primetime slots.
India will have to sacrifice 2 points if they opt not to play
If the scenario goes to India not playing against Pakistan in the World Cup, they will have to give two important points to Pakistan as per the rule. Losing two points in the league stage may become the difference between reaching the finals. There are only top teams this year, which means the competition is tough and the difference in ability, skills, and talent in the teams are not much.
As soon as we get to the India vs Pakistan match in the World Cup, we will see some development come in the matter. Indian Captain Virat Kohli has earlier said that he will respect the decision of the government in the matter of India playing Pakistan.
