India-Pakistan World Cup clash should go ahead: Prakash Padukone | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Indian badminton legend Prakash Padukone thinks the upcoming India-Pakistan clash in the upcoming T20 World Cup should go ahead despite the existing political tensions between the two countries.
The October 2 match will be the opening match of the World Cup for both teams.
“I personally think that politics should not be mixed with sports and it should go ahead, it is my personal opinion, whether it is or not, I am not an authority, I am not one to comment,” said the National Sports Club of India.
“But if you ask my personal opinion, I think the match should go ahead, they’ve played many times in the past, so it’s no different,” he added.
The ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi on Tuesday said the match should be canceled in the wake of the recent killing of civilians by terrorists in Kashmir.
At a press conference, AAP MLA Atishi said no cricket should be played between the two countries unless Pakistan stops sponsoring terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
“I am sure that not only the AAP, but also the BJP and its leadership as well as the Prime Minister will agree that there should be no cricket match between India and Pakistan unless Pakistan stops sponsoring terrorist attacks on Indian soil,” he said. At a press conference in Delhi
So far this month, 11 civilians have been killed by terrorists in Kashmir.
