The International Cricket Council (ICC) informed on Tuesday that the Pakistan-India World Cup match would be played as per the schedule in a group game in Manchester on the 16th of June 2019, as per the reports of Indian media.
The media reported that as there is no threat to the Pakistan-India match hence it would be held as per the schedule.
Dave Richardson—the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ICC said that for ICC events, all the teams have signed a participation member agreement, which needs them to take part in all the matches of the tournament and in case of any unjustified non-abidance with that provision, the playing conditions would kick in and the points would be given accordingly to the other team.
India has raised demands of boycotting Pakistan at the 2019 World Cup in mid of the Pulwama attack tensions, in which more than 40 parliamentary troopers lost their lives on the hands of a Kashmiri freedom fighter.

After the demand, the Supreme Court Committee of Administrators (CoA) had posted to the global cricket governing body, asking it to boycott the nations from where terrorism originates.
Pakistan objected to the move of the Indian team in the ODI series against Australia where they wore camouflage caps as a gesture of respect to the killed CPRF personnel during the 3rd ODI against Australia in Ranchi. Richardson said that BCCI had taken permission earlier from ICC for it and that no politics was involved in it.
He said that in this case, the subject was given to the message surrounding the gesture of wearing the caps which was of sympathizing with the people who were killed in the Pulwama attack and particularly to assist them in raising funds for the families of the deceased.
The CEO of ICC said that their objective is clear they do not mix politics with sports.
He also said that the resumption of the bilateral relations between the two nations is completely dependent on the boards of both the nations.
