Thakur, who recently became Lieutenant in the Territorial Army (TA), said that after the recent Pakistan-backed terror attack on Uri, there is absolutely no possibility of resuming cricketing ties rather the priority lies in exposing Pakistan as a country.

“Priority is to expose Pak as country which sponsors terrorism. No question of playing cricket which such a nation.” – Anurag Thakur, BCCI President

As many as 18 Indian soldiers were martyred in Uri area of Jammu and Kashmir on September 18.



The surprise attack carried out by four terrorists, who had sneaked in from across the border, had enraged many and there has been a huge public outcry over Pakistan since then.

Over the years, Pakistan cricketers have not been allowed to have any cricketing ties with India, though the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has requested for same many times.

Further, Pakistan players have also not been allowed to participate in the cash-rich Indian Premier League since 2009 which has been a sour topic for many Pakistani players.

BCCI has not only not relented on the topic, but repeatedly shelved all the plans to have a short bilateral series since 2012.

In past 4 years, Pakistan has only played against India in major tournaments like the World Cup, Champions Trophy or the World T20 events.
