Skipper to stand by government decision
India's Virat Kohli says his side will stand by their "government and board" over whether to boycott the World Cup game with Pakistan.
Tensions are once again high between the two countries after a Pakistan-based militant group claimed responsibility for a recent suicide attack in Indian-administered Kashmir.
There are now doubts about the World Cup fixture between India and Pakistan, which is set to take place in England on June 16.
Kohli has now had his say on the matter and the India captain says the team will follow any decision his country's government takes on the matter.
"The Indian team and the whole set-up was shocked and sad with what happened," said captain Kohli.
"Our stand is simple: we stick by what the nation wants to do and what the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) decides to do.
"That is basically our opinion. Whatever the government and the board decide, we will go by that and we will respect that."
