BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla has said that while he condemns attacks on non-Kashmiri civilians in Kashmir, the board cannot back out from its ‘international commitment’.
This comes after growing clamour about the cancellation of the upcoming India-Pakistan cricket match in the ongoing T20 cricket world cup,
“We strongly condemn the killings(J&K). Strict action should be taken against terror organisations. As far as the match (T20 WC IND vs PAK) is concerned, under ICC’s international commitments you can’t refuse to play against anyone. You’ve to play in ICC tournaments,” Shukla said.
According to Shukla, in tournaments organised by the International Cricket Council, countries could not back out of commitments.
