The relationship between India and Pakistan hit a new low following a suicide attack in Pulwama resulting death of 40 soldiers last week. Terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed of Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the attack.

“But the result of that would be that Pakistan will get the points of the match & if it is final (between India and Pakistan), they will win the World Cup without even playing. We haven’t yet approached ICC in this regard,” BCCI source said.

However, India are yet to approach the International Cricket Council (ICC) about their plans for the match against Pakistan.

ANI further quoted BCCI sources that the issue will be discussed on the sidelines of an ICC meeting in Dubai from February 27.

“But the result of that would be that Pakistan will get the points of the match & if it is final (b/w India & Pakistan), they will win the World Cup without even playing. We haven’t yet approached ICC in this regard”, the source further revealed.
