We have to stand united with the country. Even if we don’t play the 2019 World Cup, it won’t matter.”
We are Indians first and then we are players. We are what we are because of this country. People love us because we play for India. The armed forces sacrifice everything to protect us… it’s not right to keep playing sports with Pakistan when our soldiers are losing their lives.”
