In the wake of Pulwama Terror attack, the voice to not to play against Pakistan is raising. Now, Sourav Ganguly reacted on Sachin Tendulkar's comments on the World Cup match between India and Pakistan, saying he would rather want the title than worrying about losing two points.
Responding to the statement made by Tendulkar former India captain Sourav Ganguly said, "He wants two points against Pakistan, I want the World Cup. Whichever way you look at it".
Comment of Ganguly came after Tendulkar on Friday said he would "hate to give away two points to Pakistan" in the ICC World Cup 2019, starting in May in the UK.
Tendulkar had endorsed Sunil Gavaskar's view that India would be better off beating Pakistan in the World Cup than forfeiting the June 16 tie in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel.
Ganguly had called for severing all sporting ties with Pakistan like his former teammate Harbhajan Singh. He said, "This is a 10-team World Cup and each team plays matches against every other team. If India doesn't play a match in the World Cup, it won't be an issue.
Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad had taken a dig at Ganguly for his comments, saying the Sourav wants to run for elections and aspires to be the chief minister, thus this is a publicity stunt to gain attention.
