Mumbai: Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday said if India boycotts Pakistan at the World Cup, he would “hate” to give two points to the arch-rivals. Taking to Twitter, the master-blaster said: “India has always come up trumps against Pakistan in the World Cup. It is time to beat them once again. I would personally hate to give them two points and help them in the tournament.”

However, Tendulkar said whatever the government decides, he will completely support it. “Having said that, for me India will always come first, so whatever my country decides, I will back that decision with all my heart,” he said. As many as 40 CRPF personnel were killed in a terror attack carried out by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Pulwama in Kashmir on February 14. There have been growing demands that India should not play Pakistan on June 16 at the World Cup, scheduled to take place at the Old Trafford in England, as a mark of protest.
