Speaking about covering the portrait of the cricketer-turned-politician, president of the CCI, Prem Udani told ANI that although the club respects Imran Khan's cricketing achievements, they are covering his portrait as a sign of solidarity towards the martyred soldiers in the Pulwama terror attack. He had led Pakistan in a festival game against India in 1987.

On Thursday, at least 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers were killed in a terror attack while several others are battling for their lives following what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir.

Indian cricket fans, angered by an attack claimed by Pakistan-based militants on Indian forces in disputed Kashmir, have urged India to boycott a World Cup match against Pakistan this summer. "You have enough funds to pull this off", the supporter tweeted. "Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports", Bafna said.

The Cricket Club of India (CCI) said it supported a boycott of Pakistan at the World Cup in June. Tewari also alleged the Jaish was able to build a new headquarters outside Bahawalpur in Pakistan's Punjab province and demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi ask Imran to hand over Jaish chief Maulana Masood Azhar.

On directions of the Indian government, DSport, the official broadcaster of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in India, has blacked out the telecast of the tournament over Pulwama attack.

Former cricketer and Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan's portrait was placed in CCI's "All-rounder" restaurant while a photograph of Pakistani team, including the prime minister, was also placed on one of the walls of the club.

"The PCB intends to take up these incidents with the BCCI and the ICC at the upcoming ICC committee meeting in Dubai later this month", he said.
