In the draft, the BCCI argues that Pakistan should be banned from the World Cup
given the Indian government's stand that the country is supporting terrorism in India
- the latest incident being the Pulwama militant attack where 42 Indian soldiers died
after a suicide bomber rammed into their convoy in Kashmir.
The ICC is believed to have turned down the BCCI's proposal for member countries to "sever" ties
with other members that harbour terrorism, saying the ICC was not the appropriate forum to take such decisions.
Shashank Manohar raised the topic himself, briefing the Board about receiving the BCCI letter
and saying that the ICC primary duty concerned cricket.
