Government to decide on India-Pakistan World Cup match: Vinod Rai

India vs Pakistan

New Delhi, Feb 22: The Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai on Friday said we have decided to consult the government regarding the match between India and Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup.

“We’ll write to ICC expressing our concerns about attacks that took place & that security of players, officials and everybody else must be taken care of. We’re telling cricketing community that in future we must sever ties with nations from where terror emanates”, he told media.

The CoA Chairman further stated “16th June (India vs Pakistan match in World Cup) is very far away. We will take a call on that much later and in consultations with the government”.

In the wake of Pulwama attack which claimed lives of 40 CRPF troopers, the Indian Premier League (IPL) opening ceremony has been cancelled.

“We’ll not have a regular IPL opening ceremony and the amount of the budget for the opening ceremony will be given to families of the victims of this terror attack”, he asserted.
