India bound by agreement to play Pakistan in World Cup 2019: ICC

March 19, 2019

New Delhi: International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dave Richardson on Monday said there is no threat to the India-Pakistan World Cup match, saying that both the teams are bound by an agreement. India is scheduled to take on Pakistan in a group game in Manchester on June 16. “For ICC events, all teams have signed a members’ participation agreement, which requires them to participate in all the matches of the tournament and (in case of) any unjustified non-compliance with that provision, the playing conditions will kick in and the points will be awarded accordingly (to the other team),” Richardson said.

The tie came under cloud following demands to boycott Pakistan at the 2019 World Cup in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, in which more than 40 CRPF troopers were killed.

Following the demand, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had written to the global cricket governing body, urging it to boycott countries from where “terrorism emanates”.

With Pakistan objecting to the move in the ODI series against Australia where the Indian team wore camouflage caps as a mark of respect to the martyred CRPF personnel during the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi recently, Richardson said the BCCI took prior permission from for it and there was no politics involved.
