The marquee World Cup clash between the two arch rivals is little under four months away but there is already a shadow of doubt on the India-Pakistan clash in Manchester on June 16.Emotions are running high ever since the dastardly attack in Pulwama where 40 of CRPF Jawans had to sacrifice their lives last week.The India team may have its reasons to play or not to play the highly anticipated match against Pakistan, but as of today, the players share the same sentiments as their fellow countrymen.India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal doesn’t know as of now if that match will take place as scheduled but the leg-spinner was vocal enough to call for a strict and a befitting reply to Pakistan for the thousands and lakhs of lives that have been lost due to cross border terrorism.”The decision to play the World Cup match against Pakistan has to be taken by the BCCI and the government. One or two players cannot decide but I think it is high time and we need to take strong action against the perpetrators of terrorism,” Chahal, who, in all likelihood, will be part of India’s 15-man squad for the World Cup, told Sports Tak.The frustration and anger were evident in Chahal’s voice even as his immediate goal would be the home series against Australia which begins with two T20Is on February 24.”This should settle once and for all. We can’t tolerate it any longer. Every three months we get to hear about our jawans losing their lives to terrorism and we can’t keep waiting for things to happen. We have to make things happen and we should settle this face to face, even if that means aar paar ki ladaai (fight on the battlefield),” said the 28-year-old leg-spinner.advertisementLegendary spinner Harbhajan Singh had expressed great anguish over Pakistan’s lack of intent in stop terrorism. He said India should boycott the World Cup match against Pakistan following the Pulwama attacks and Pakistan’s repeated attempts to disrupt peace in India.Chahal’s statement comes a day after Pakistan decided not to send their shooters to participate in the ISSF Shooting World Cup, scheduled to be held in India from Wednesday.The National Rifle Association of India claimed that they received the confirmation of the visas of the two Pakistan shooters, although the Pakistani authorities said there was a considerable delay by India to grant them the visas.Also Read | Absolutely crystal clear: Shahid Afridi on Imran Khan’s Pulwama reaction Also Read | Harbhajan Singh urges Imran Khan to find a way to end terrorAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
