- International cricket control board fined India for not playing cricket with Pakistan.
The big talking point in Indian cricket right now is the question of playing Pakistan at the upcoming one-day international World Cup. More than 400,000 applicants have reportedly applied for the 25,000 seater Old Trafford stadium in Manchester for what is the most anticipated fixture of the World Cup, not just this year.
But, following the terror attack in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, in which more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed, there are calls for India to boycott the fixture, at the very least, or the World Cup as a whole.
