IND vs PAK at T20 World Cup 2021: Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday demanded that the Indian cricket team should opt-out of its match against Pakistan in ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai.

Atishi, AAP MLA from Kalkaji said, "We see people being attacked in Kashmir. I'm sure that even the Prime Minister agrees with the stand of not conducting the match (IND v PAK) as when in Opposition he used to question that when state-sponsored terrorism is taking place in India why should we play cricket with them?"
