New Delhi: Supporting the Indian Government’s stand to isolate Pakistan post the Uri attacks, Indian cricketers Irfan Pathan and Parthiv Patel have ruled out possibilities of playing cricket with Pakistan.
 
Falling in line with Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) stand, Irfan Pathan said, “For me country comes first, we must support whatever the Government decides in such situations.”
 
Sharing his views on the same issue, Parthiv Patel said, “BCCI president has clearly said that no question of cricket with Pakistan, so we support it and also our government’s stand.”
 
Earlier, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Anurag Thakur had also ruled out any possibility of playing cricket with Pakistan in the near future.
 
Post the deadly Uri terror attack on India army base, where 19 Indian soldiers were martyred, India put on its efforts to diplomatically isolate Pakistan in the world forum by exposing its support to the terror outfits. 
 
US, UK, Russia, Australia, France, Bangaldesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and other countries had condemned the cowardly uri attacks and asked Pakistan to act against terror.
