Uri attack has had a major impact on the country. India is mourning the loss of its brave 18 soldiers who sacrificed their lives, and at the same time, it is furious over the enemy i.e. Pakistan.
Now this attack has shown its impact on the field of cricket too. We know you used to enjoy those legendary India-Pakistan matches, but now IT MIGHT NOT HAPPEN anymore.
At a press conference, some reporter asked Anurag Thakur, the BJP MP and president of BCCI, whether India would be playing cricket matches against Pakistan or not, after the attack. On that he replied “Priority is to expose Pak as country which sponsors terrorism. No question of playing cricket which such a nation”
He further added
“There are no tests or bilateral matches scheduled for this year with Pakistan and the question of playing against Pakistan today does not arise.”
Thakur stated that the main priority is exposing Pakistan as a nation which openly promotes terrorism. He made a valid point by saying that India has already defeated Pakistan in all World Cup matches and all 3 wars and now, it is extremely essential to isolate Pakistan globally.
“There are two major issues in front of the world today — the sluggish economy which is affecting trade and terrorism. In the last financial year the world has suffered close to $60 billion loss. Apart from that India has suffered terrorism for the last three decades. The world is facing it now. They will have a better understanding on what India had gone through in the last so many years. That is why globally we are getting all the support, thanks to Modiji’s leadership,”

Message from Pakistani!
Pak is not interested in playing with Hindus anyway. BCCI statement is lame and unnecessary. Who f****** cares???

Anurag will take U-Turn soon !
Rajeev Shukla and Anurag Thakur were interested in playing with Pak!
when whole Nation was against playing cricket it was Anurag Thakur and Rajeev Shukla who were most eager to engage with Pak
