Pulwama Terror attack: No chance of bilateral cricket with Pakistan, says Sourav Ganguly
Kolkata : Brushing aside the possibility of bilateral cricket, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly said that India and Pakistan are not going to play the game together, specially after the Pulwama attack.
“Whatever happened in Pulwama last week was really sad…it is the worst possible thing that could ever happen. And, whatever reactions came from the people of India…was right. There is no chance of a bilateral series with Pakistan after this incident,” Sourav Ganguly was quoted as saying by a media channel.
“I can also understand the sentiments of people asking India not to play Pakistan in the World Cup and I feel the government should take strong action on this issue. The after effect of this should be strong from India,” Ganguly added.
He also mentioned that ever since Supreme Court took over BCCI, the cricket body has become powerless.
“I don’t think anything is left in BCCI after the Supreme Court situation. There are no office bearers left to take a decision but I feel that BCCI should take a strong decision on the issue and send a strong no-nonsense message.”
“This is a 10-team World Cup and every team plays every team and I feel if India doesn’t play a match in the World Cup, it won’t be an issue,” Ganguly added.
