Things are not normal between India and Pakistan after the attack on CRPF convoy on February 14 in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. Everyone from the common man to the Bollywood celebrity is talking about boycoting Pakistan. Cricket is not untouched by this, and many former cricketers have talked about not playing matches against Pakistan in the World Cup. In such a scenario, India’s legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev, who won the first World Cup in 1983, has supported playing matches with Pakistan in the World Cup. Before Kapil, former Indian greats Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar have also done this.
During the ABP News Summit, Kapil said that India should play against Pakistan in World Cup. While he also explicitly said that any other type of series on this issue should depend on the government’s policy. Kapil said “There is no personal relationship in the World Cup, it is a world event. You can not boycott the program due to the Pakistan PM on a big stage. Some people are saying that the business should be closed. The government will decide what to do next. There is no opinion in my own case, my opinion, the opinion of the country. The decision that the country will take will be my decision. I just want the cricket should move forward. “
While Kapil was asked about the opinions of other cricketers, he said, “When the players talk about politics they keep their thinking. I am not so smart enough to tell such a serious problem very easily. “On the day the Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar had taken the side of Pakistan to play in the World Cup. While Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh refused to play matches in the World Cup. Kapil Dev said, “Pakistan’s case is very sensitive, people like us should not say anything like this. Some things we should leave on the government, we should think about the policy because the government has made us all. “
