Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan said on Sunday that he feels that the national cricket team should not play its scheduled World T20 match against India in Dharamsala on March 19 given the “hateful statements and resistance” shown by Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

According to Dawn News, Imran told the media today that he was disappointment with the statements issued by the Chief Minister.

“The statement by the Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister is an irresponsible one and is totally against the standards of hospitality and hosting. The Chief Minister’s statements clearly promote hate,” said Imran.

“Amid this situation, I don’t believe the Pakistan team should play at Himachal Pradesh,” he added.

Virbhadra Singh had earlier expressed inability to provide security for the match between India and Pakistan in the wake of objections raised by the Kangra-based families of martyrs and ex-servicemen, who consider hosting Pakistan as an “insult” to the soldiers who lost their lives in Pathankot airbase terror attack in January.
