While the world celebrated Valentine’s Day on February, 14, for Indians it was a black day as 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives in one of the deadliest terror attacks on Indian soil. An SUV laden car with explosives rammed in the military convoy killing the soldiers and injuring many. Since the horrific incident, the nation has been seething with rage for the neighbours with people from all walks of life dealing with the news in their own way. Like the rest of the country, Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh too wants to get back and the spinner has suggested that India boycott Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup clash.
In an interview to a news channel, the veteran off-spinner openly stated that country comes first and that the Men in Blue should not play Pakistan in the 2019 World Cup. "There is no need for any relations with Pakistan, let alone cricket. Don't play the World Cup match with Pakistan on June 16 -- country comes first for all of us and we are all standing with our forces. Pakistan has been promoting cross-border terrorism and this attack was unbelievably shocking." the 38-year-old player said.

The Virat Kohli-led boys are one of the favourites to win the World Cup this year and would lose match points if they boycott the match against Pakistan. But Bhajji seems to have full confidence in the boys and said that the team can make it to the next level even without them. "I don't care about losing points as the Indian team is powerful enough to win the World Cup without playing Pakistan," he said.
