No question of playing cricket with Pakistan, says BCCI President Anurag Thakur

In the backdrop of the Uri terror attack, BCCI President Anurag Thakur has ruled out the possibility of reviving bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan in near future, saying even considering such a thought is not appropriate.

When Thakur was asked about whether the board is planning to play against their bitter rivals soon, he said: “In the context of what has happened even considering such a thought is not appropriate. Priority is to expose Pak as a country which sponsors terrorism. No question of playing cricket which such a nation.”

The president also revealed that there is no scheduled series with Pakistan this year. Thakur claimed that India is superior to the two nations and can decimate Pakistan anytime they want.

“India has defeated Pakistan in wars of 1965, 1971 and Kargil. It also defeated Pakistan in all World Cup cricket matches. It can decimate Pakistan anytime but it is more important to isolate it globally,” added Thakur, who is also a Territorial Army officer.

Indo-Pak clash is one on the biggest clash in world cricket and fans desperately wait for the match. But after the terrorist attacks, the Indian fans too supported Anurag Thakur’s statement.
