As per the latest cricket news, on Sunday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said that boycotting any country emanating terror is not in its hands, with remarks to the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) letter agreeable to the international cricket body to sever ties with countries backing terrorism.

A source of ICC said, “They cannot boycott any country which is emanating terror. It should be done by the government. It is not our hand.”

The Indian Cricket Board had urged the international governing body of cricket to separate ties with countries from which terrorism arise, in a clear context to Pakistan.

In an appeal made by BCCI in a letter to the ICC against the deadly Pulwama terror attack. It indicated to the February 14 terror strike and said, “Most countries from which the members of the ICC hail (including the UK) have strongly condemned this terrorist attack and expressed solidarity with India.”

On behalf of BCCI, the letter was sent by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The letter said, “BCCI urges the cricketing community to sever ties with countries from which terrorism emanates.”

Even though, the letter didn’t mention any country from which “terrorism emanates”, but the reference was clearly indicating Pakistan from where terror groups have been launching attacks in India.
