Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly responded to teammate Sachin Tendulkar's comment that India should not sacrifice two points in the World Cup by not playing against Pakistan by saying that he wants the World Cup title.

"This is a 10-team World Cup and each team plays matches against every other team". It had already been reported earlier that the BCCI was mulling a forfeit by not playing Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack and lose two points in the group match. One can understand the losses suffered by the PCB but the repeated failures by the Pakistanis to stop its non state actors from exercising terror activities on the Indian people has completely demolished the financial model of the Pakistan cricket.

"If the government says it's that sensitive you do not need to play the World Cup, I will go by my government", the head coach further said.

Furlong further said that the ICC is "likely to discuss this at the ICC Board meetings this week and we will be monitoring the situation with our members". We stick by what the nation wants and what the BCCI decides.

The issue wasn't a part of the agenda but now that BCCI has officially written a letter, and the matter will be up for discussion.

With his statement, Tendulkar had endorsed Sunil Gavaskar's view that India would be better off beating Pakistan in the World Cup than boycotting them.

Opinions have been divided on the calls for boycott with former India captain Sourav Ganguly and senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh wanting the June 16 match to be called off.

India is seeking to isolate Pakistan cricket in the same manner South Africa was isolated from global sporting activity during apartheid. We can play them and beat them and make sure they don't reach the semi-finals.

The updates came after the BCCI had mulled the option of calling for a complete ban on Pakistan from the upcoming World Cup, via a draft letter prepared on Wednesday. "He was a fantastic player for Pakistan".
