No India-Pakistan Cricket Until Terror Attacks Stop: Sourav Ganguly

Former India captain, Sourav Ganguly, has backed the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) decision of disposing off the talks of bilateral series with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after a terrorist attack allegedly linked to their neighboring country hit Gurdaspur in India on Monday.

“I think BCCI is correct in saying that terror will have to completely go before play could happen. Because as human beings we also want terror to completely go,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

He further stressed that although the series is of much importance to the cricket world, it cannot be negotiated over security concerns.

“So this has always been the case with an India-Pakistan series. As much as we understand that it is entertaining and it is a high-profile series, we cannot take away the sufferings which the people go through at the border especially after what happened in Gurdaspur,” he added.

India and Pakistan have always been at loggerheads, be it on the field or off it. The cricketing ties between two nations were shut down after the 2008 terrorist attack on India, before Pakistan toured India in December 2012.
