New Delhi: The BCCI is extremely reluctant to send Team India to Pakistan for even one day international fixtures and as authoritative sources have revealed to Zee News, three top cricketers including Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag are likely to drop out even if plans are made for truncated ODI series.
Osama`s death has clearly blown away the so called Mohali spirit and despite PM Dr Manmohan Singh`s personal desire, even the UPA government is not very keen to play cricket with Pakistan.
Reliable sources in the BCCI told Zee News that Team India`s calendar was chock a block and despite, some unofficial feelers from the government the BCCI was not in a mood to play ball.
A senior BCCI functionary told Zee News, ``The last time our players were attacked by the bombs in the hotel. Can anyone ensure any security in Pakistan today? The players are very reluctant and we have to respect that.``
