On Friday, the Committee of Administrators run BCCI decided against taking any stand on the World Cup clash against Pakistan but urged the ICC and other nations to "sever ties" with countries from where "terrorism emanates".

Chiku, as he is affectionately known, also stressed upon the fact that having the correct frame of mind is of paramount importance when playing Cricket's blockbuster event - The World Cup.

Virat Kohli returns to lead the hosts in their final rubber before this year's 50-over showpiece with two T20s followed by a five-match one day worldwide series.

There is not much ambiguity in their pace bowling options while the successful spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are set to travel to England, where the twice champions begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5.

The brand name " Galaxy Fold " has been suggested in the past by sources with patchy track records on unreleased Samsung products. For a front-facing camera , the S10 and S10 Plus will feature a hole-punch display rather than a notch.


According to a report on Times Now, Sourav said, "He (Sachin) wants 2 points against Pakistan, I want World Cup". "It would have been more ideal and logical", Kohli said while speaking to the media ahead of a two-match T20I series against Australia that precedes a five-match ODI rubber between the two sides. Hence, those players must make an attempt to "protect that mindset" and ensure they are aligned to the team's cause. That will take a consistent effort from all the players during the IPL to keep a check on that.

"Who wins if India decide against playing Pakistan in the World Cup?" The squads to play Australia, however, are more or less full strength and slightly off brand for a board that is big on workload management. It all depends on how you feel physically but everyone has to be really honest about it to themselves and accordingly see how they feel and not push themselves to the limit that might hamper the Indian team later on. If you are hitting the ball well, there is no need to go to a practice session and tire yourself out for three hours, whereas you can utilise that particular phase to rest and recover even more. "I think that's the only way forward".

Now when the same was asked to legend of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar should India play Pakistan or not? he was very clear that if India didn't play it will be a benefit to Pakistan.
