Following the Pulwama attack, state cricket associations such as Cricket Club of India, Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association and Punjab Cricket Association have removed photographs of all Pakistan cricketers from their stadium gallery and headquarters
Mumbai: Since the Pulwama terror attack, Pakistan is being opposed everywhere in India. The cricketing world has not been untouched by this protest. State cricket associations such as Cricket Club of India (CCI), Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) and Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) have removed photographs of all Pakistan cricketers from their stadium gallery and headquarters. But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not yet removed the pictures of any Pakistan player from its Mumbai headquarters. Bat and photos signed by Pakistan players are still hanging on the walls of the Mumbai headquarters.
There is a question as to when the BCCI will take action and remove all things related to those cricketers, like the rest of the associations.
The people of the country, hurt by the Pulwama terror attack, are demanding that India should boycott the match with Pakistan in the World Cup and end its relationship with them in every field.
Shocker from Cricket board. Pakistan cricket icons cheer terror. But still heroes for our BCCI. King size billing for Pakistan players. BCCI toys with India's sentiments?— TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) February 20, 2019

The match between India and Pakistan, which is scheduled to be held on June 16, remains a matter of discussion not just in the cricket world, but in the whole country. However, there's been no conclusion regarding this matter and it appears that the BCCI has completely put the ball in the centre of the field and has gone into the 'wait and watch' zone.
BCCI sources said that the government will take a final decision on whether India will play in the World Cup against Pakistan or not and the ICC cannot interfere in this decision. If the government decides that India will not play against Pakistan, it is certain that the game will not be taking place.
BCCI Sources on if India will play against Pakistan in World Cup: 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 https://t.co/cWsaAgw7R2— ANI (@ANI) February 20, 2019
The World Cup is being held in England from May 30 and India is going to play at the Old Trafford on June 16 against Pakistan.
