Battleground to playground: "Don't put India, Pak in one group", BCCI will tell ICC

New Delhi : After isolating Pakistan diplomatically, India has decided to isolate it in sports too. BCCI president Anurag Thakur will request ICC not to put the two neighbours in same group in any ICC tournament. Post this request, the first ICC tournament will be the Champions Trophy. Thakur said this will be done in view of the "public sentiment" after the Uri attack. Bilateral series were stopped in 2012.
