India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series since 2013, but in ODI tournaments like the 2017 Champions Trophy and the 2018 Asia Cup, they have faced in neutral venues. Now, they have planned to engage at the 2019 World Cup held on June 16th in Manchester, England.
Due to the collapse of political relations between India-Pakistan, and the recent heartless terror attack on CRPF jawans convoy that killed 44 soldiers in Jammu and Pulwama district in Kashmir has hampered the Cricketing ties between the two countries.

The chairman of Indian Premier League (IPL) Rajeev Shukla said that there will be no bilateral cricketing ties between India and Pakistan if the state-sponsored terrorism. His comments followed a brutal terrorist attack in south Kashmir’s Pulwama that killed 44 CRPF soldiers.
The globe denounced the attack with countries from the United States to Russia. Pakistan was blamed for the attack by India and the US, where the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist group is based. But Pakistan has denied its wrongdoing, which brings outrage across the nation.
Even the prestigious Cricket Club of India (CCI) removed a portrait of former Pakistan captain Imran Khan, currently the country’s prime minister, protesting the attack.
Shukla said that the tournament is still far away. According to the Government decision, India may or may not boycott their upcoming WC game against Pakistan. Till then, the Sporting ties will be hampered.
