Cricket News India cricket team on Pakistan boycott in ICC World Cup 2019 – Who said what

first_imghighlights The Pulwama terror attack resulted in the death of 40 CRPF jawans.India will take on Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup on June 16.There are calls for India to boycott the clash against Pakistan in the World Cup. New Delhi: The Pulwama terror attack fall-out continues to dominate headlines in both India and Pakistan. The target this time is cricket and with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 less than 100 days away, there are mounting calls from many Indian quarters to boycott the clash against Pakistan which will take place on June 16 in Manchester. The ramifications of a boycott will be hard on India, the ICC and the World Cup in general but the country is angry following the attack which killed 40 CRPF jawans. There has been considerable amount of talk from both sides regarding the India vs Pakistan situation in the aftermath of the Pulwama Terror attack. Here is a compilation of what India and Pakistan cricket players have said about the chances of India boycotting the game against Pakistan.Sachin Tendulkar: India has always come up trumps against Pakistan in the World Cup. Time to beat them once again. Would personally hate to give them two points and help them in the tournament. Having said that, for me India always comes first, so whatever my country decides, I will back that decision with all my heart.Yuzvendra Chahal: It’s not in our hands. If BCCI says, we will play. If they say no then we won’t. If we don’t take action, nothing will change. This is high time. We should take firm action. There are people in Pakistan who are not at fault but those who are behind the attack should be punished.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. It’s high time and we have to make things happen and we should settle this face to face, even if that means aar paar ki ladaai. Harbhajan Singh: There is no need for any relations with Pakistan, let alone cricket. Don’t play the World Cup match with Pakistan on June 16 — country comes first for all of us and we are all standing with our forces. I don’t care about losing points.Sourav Ganguly: And, whatever reactions came from the people of India…was right. There is no chance of a bilateral series with Pakistan after this incident. I agree that after this attack, India should not only stop playing cricket, hockey or football with Pakistan but should cut all ties with them.Mohammad Azharuddin: If we are not playing Pakistan in bilateral series, we should not play them anywhere. I agree with Harbhajan, the World Cup cannot be bigger than the country.Shoaib Akhtar: Should sports stay political? Not at all. So these differences set in matters of circumstances. We strongly condemn the loss of lives. But when it comes to our country, we are one nation, united and we will stand by our Prime Minister’s statement without having a second thought. They have a right to pull out. Their country was attacked and hence the decision. You cannot argue on that?”Virender Sehwag on Twitter: Really pained by the cowardly attack on our CRPF in J&K in which our brave men have been martyred . No words are enough to describe the pain.  I wish a speedy recovery to those injured. #SudharJaaoWarnaSudhaarDengeShahid Afridi: Without any proof, they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran and China.Gautam Gambhir on Twitter: Indian Army ne yeh jang bhi shuru nahi ki (did not start even this war) but they will finish it and I am with them emotion-to-emotion, shoulder-to-shoulder. We the civilians will decide what ‘F’ stands for.Mayank Agarwal: I am not allowed to answer any of that. You have to ask our management. I have my stand, but there are rules and regulations we have to folow. I cannot give an interview or speak about it on my own……After that meeting (CoA meeting) is done, once we get clearance, only then we can discuss.Sunil Gavaskar: Who wins if India decides against playing Pakistan in the World Cup? And I am not even talking about the semis and the finals. Who wins? Pakistan wins because they get two points.Sarfaraz Ahmed: The India and Pakistan match should be played as per schedule as there are millions of people who want to watch this game. I just don’t think cricket should be targeted for political gains. It is disappointing to see cricket being targeted after the Pulwama incident. I don’t recall Pakistan ever mixing sports with politics. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Guardiola vows City have desire to retain title

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus sealed his side’s win at Everton © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Feb 7 – Pep Guardiola insisted Manchester City’s 2-0 victory at Everton proved they are determined to win their title fight with Liverpool as the champions returned to the top of the table on Wednesday.It was a far from inspired performance from City at Goodison Park, but goals from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus ensured they knocked Liverpool out of pole position on goal difference. Liverpool had occupied first place since December 8, but now the pressure is on Jurgen Klopp’s side just five weeks after they could have moved 10 points clear of City.With Liverpool showing signs of nerves after two successive draws damaged their bid for a first English title since 1990, City took advantage in a fixture which was brought forward due to their League Cup final date with Chelsea later this month.It was a crucial victory and City manager Guardiola claimed his players have no intention of letting Liverpool off the hook now.“We come from champions and we are in a situation where we could have given up but it didn’t happen,” Guardiola said.“We gave an incredible game against Liverpool. These players have shown incredible desire and performances for the last two years. How could I question them?“We have played one more game. but it’s the best we can do. The reality is one month ago we could have been 10 points behind when we played Liverpool.“A few days ago we could have been seven points behind. Now we are top of the league. That is the best advice, the lesson is – never give up.“That is a lesson for all athletes. Try to win the games, because life can change immediately.”City struck at the best possible time when Laporte headed them in front in the second minute of first half stoppage-time.The opening goal came from a free-kick, needlessly conceded by Idrissa Gueye as he slid in late on Fernandinho, and taken by David Silva.The Spanish midfielder curled in a perfect delivery which found Laporte unmarked, and only eight yards from goal, for a solid finish.It was the 16th consecutive league and cup game in which Guardiola’s side has scored a first half goal, a run dating back to their first league defeat of the season at Chelsea in early December.And in the context of the title race, it may yet prove to be one of the more important although it took until deep into stoppage-time of the second half for City to claim their second.– Title intrigue –Kevin De Bruyne played in Jesus, whose initial run was blocked by Jordan Pickford, only for the ball to sit up kindly for the Brazilian to head into an open goal.That was enough to stretch City’s goal advantage to seven over Liverpool and set up an intriguing weekend, when Klopp’s team must face Bournemouth 24 hours before the leaders host Chelsea on Sunday.“We have started the week well, (beating) Arsenal and here, now comes a big, big test, a big goal,” Guardiola said.“Chelsea are an exceptional team who have had seven days to prepare. We have to prepare well.“It really is a final for us this weekend. If we are able to take these points, it is a huge step forward.”Having survived a test of their nerve at Everton, City have no time to rest on their laurels.But Guardiola insisted he won’t complain about the hectic schedule.“I used to listen to what older managers – Sir Alex Ferguson, Rafa Benitez – what they said and complained about the schedules and nothing happened,” he said.“I arrived here so I understand the situation. If we played just one competition, the schedule would be better but when you have to play four you have to adapt.“So when the Premier League say we have to play there, we take the bus to play at the right time and, at the right moment, we play the game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
