Sourav Ganguly clears the air on response to Sachin Tendulkar's statement

Virat Kohli: We will go by what government and BCCI decide

The calls have intensified for India to boycott their clash against Pakistan.

Ganguly on Saturday, however, took a step ahead when asked to react to Tendulkar's remark.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA), which governs the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Sunday, said the sporting community should isolate Pakistan for supporting terror and make it the "apartheid of global cricket", just like South Africa was boycotted in world games due to its policy of apartheid.

Virat's comment comes following the dastardly attack in Pulwama that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans.

Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar Sunday reverted to all the trolls and statements trying to instigate differences with former captain Sourav Ganguly over the cricket match between India and Pakistan in the upcoming ICC World Cup.

Speaking at a promotional event in Kolkata, Ganguly said: "He (Sachin) wants two points against Pakistan, I want the World Cup".

It has two colour sensors for accurate vibrant colour images and three monochromatic sensors which give sharpness and detail. From the front, the new smartphone looks nearly indistinguishable from the recent slew of Android-powered rivals.

Kohli's stand is pretty similar to what chief coach Ravi Shastri echoed in an interview to a television channel where he said that the team will "accept whatever decision that the government takes". "If the government says it's that sensitive you do not need to play the World Cup, I will go by my government", Ravi Shastri was quoted as saying by Times Now.

"Firstly, our honest condolences to the families of the soldiers who lost their lives. Strongly believe that all of us want what's best for our nation", he posted.

Pressure was also mounted through social media on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to stop playing cricket with Pakistan which is engaged in perpetrating terrorism and harbouring terrorists who are targeting India, particularly Jammu and Kashmir.

India are scheduled to play Pakistan (in the group stage) on June 16, in Manchester.

"He [Tendulkar] wants two points against Pakistan, I want the World Cup". If India decides to boycott them, they would lose two points in the grand event.
