The World Cup match between India and Pakistan which was all set to play on 19th March 2016 at Dharamshala is going to be cancelled, Said senior BJP leader Shanta Kumar.
Now-a-days, India is suffering from the terror attacks, e.g Pathankot and Gurdaspur. Though Himachal Pradesh is the land of brave soldiers, have two martyrs of the terror attack in Pathankot were from this area and a memorial is located just a few meters from the cricket stadium where the match is to be played. So the Chief minister of Himachal Pradesh and BJP MP Kumar said that the Indo-Pak cricket match should be cancelled as a mark of respect to the martyrs and soldiers from the state.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan has said that it is the joint responsibility of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Indian government to ensure the best security for the Pakistan Team. He also told the media that the PCB was closely monitoring all developments surrounding the World T20 and Pakistan’s participation in it.
Asking for security concerns for the Pakistan team in India. Shaharyar Khan said that “Our government has given us permission to send the team to India on condition they are not security concerns for our players.”
The senior BJP leader claimed the voice of objection against the match are growing louder and the ex-servicemen would not permit the visit of the Pakistan team to this area. Even the state government is opposing the match in Dharamsala. The BJP leader said that “In view of this, it could also be a security threat for Pakistani players and their fans.”
Let's see what happens to the match of India vs Pakistan, but as a cricket fan, I will never want this thing to happen. Cricket should be kept away from the politics because cricket is the game of Gentleman.
