Mumbai, Feb 22 (IBNS): A week after a terror attack in Pulwama area of Jammu and Kashmir left 40 CRPF jawans killed, the Indian cricket board on Friday wrote a letter to the International Cricket Council and asked it to take note of the situation.

In the letter, BCCI urged the cricketing community to sever ties with countries from which 'terrorism emanates'. 

"The BCCI on Friday wishes to address concerns and sentiments that have emerged after the recent dastardly terrorist attack which was carried out on Indian soil by a terror outfit based out of Pakistan which resulted in the death of 44 Indian security personnel," read the BCCI letter.

"In view of the aforesaid terrorist attack, BCCI fears for the safety and security of players and match officials participating in upcoming ICC events including the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Most countries from which the members of the ICC hail (including the United Kingdom) have strongly condemned this terrorist attack and expressed solidarity with India. BCCI urges the cricketing community to sever ties with countries from which terrorism emanates," it said.

Speaking on the issue of security during the World Cup, the Indian cricket board said: "The BCCI also wishes to express its concerns over the safety and security of fans of Indian cricket at the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The BCCI trusts that the ICC and ECB will ensure that the most robust security is provided to players, match officials and fans of Indian cricket for the upcoming World Cup.
