This comes in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack last week.

The nation was banned for 21 years from 1970 till 1991 in relation to the apartheid, which saw black South Africans being racially discriminated. "I am sure you understand the feelings and hope everyone joins us in this movement", Tendulkar said.

"We must sever ties with nations from which such terrorism emanates". The ICC on its part has said that security remains "top priority" for the global governing body of the sport and that they will provide all security plans to the BCCI during an ICC meeting in March. More than 40 CRPF jawans were killed and many others were injured. "16th June is very far away". A Pakistan-based terrorist organisation has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the Indian government's stand is that Pakistan supports terrorism in India. "We will go by what the govt and the Board decides, we will respect that", Kohli stated.

The BCCI had expressed its concerns over the Pulwama attack as well as security of Indian players in the letter to the ICC.

Ganguly, now the president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), took to Twitter on Sunday to clarify that his statement of "I want the World Cup" had nothing to do with what Tendulkar said and blamed a section of the media to pit his words against that of the Master Blaster.

Former players like Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh have called for boycotting the World Cup match against Pakistan.

Even the entry of former Pakistan's World Cup winning captain Imran Khan as Prime Minister has not been able to help the PCB.
