Now Imagine, if India boycott Pakistan, there is a big advantage for Pakistan as they will be rewarded with winning two points which will help them in a high chance in the race to reach the semi finals? Now do Indian fans want to see Pakistan in the world cup semi final or final? No, never an Indian fan can wish that.

Our clean sweep record will be disturbed:

This is not as important as the lives of the soldier, but taking sports as just a game, Pakistan has never had the guts or capacity to beat India in a world cup game. India has beaten Pakistan in all world cup games played so far. It is India who has shown Mauka-Mauka in all the world cups to Pakistan. We Indians don’t have to give those two points away like that.

Coming back to boycott:

Coming back to the fact that they should boycott the game it can affect the entire business endorsements and TRP plans made by Pakistan. India- Pakistan match is bigger than the world cup final for both the countries especially for Pakistan who does have the capacity to beat India in the world cup.

How will it be? For someone who is patriotic Indian, it will be the biggest achievement to block Pakistan from playing the world cup; the Anger caused by Pulwama attack is still fresh in mind for everyone and blocking Pakistan from world cup and hurting Pakistanis is what they think will be a perfect punishment for the country. Indeed, it will be a proper slipper shot to the country that actually contains too many terror camps in their land.

For a sports lover:

For someone who is patriotic, but views sports as something different from this issue and attacks, it is going to be a boring world cup for if Pakistan does not play in the world cup. For a sports lover, India playing against Pakistan is a separate thrill which levels to the excitement of India playing in the world cup final.
