Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh shared his opinion that India should not play Pakistan in the 12th edition of the cricket world cup because of the Pulwama attack that took the lives of 49 CRPF soldiers.

"Indian team is very strong enough to win the World Cup even without having to play Pakistan. I think India should break all the cricketing ties with Pakistan as a mark of respect for the armed force. Country comes first and we are all standing behind our country. The attack was unbelievable and very wrong," said Bajji. BCCI has already broken all ties with Pakistan cricket board but they couldn't do anything when playing the ICC hosted events. Even ICC has accepted that it is deliberately making India and Pakistan play against each other in its events.

Though Harbhajan's statements make sense, BCCI is the ultimate decision maker. On the other hand, Indian Cricket Team will have to lock horns with Pakistan Cricket Team on June 16th at Manchester.
