Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who won the Lok Sabha 2019 election from East Delhi constituency, said losing two points by not playing against Pakistan is nothing compared to lives of our soldiers.
"We can’t play with the sentiments of our country," he told Zee News Hindi when asked if India should play the World Cup match against Pakistan.
"Two points are not important than the lives of our soldiers but for this, the entire country needs to be on the same page. We should have the courage to lose points even it's the first match or the finals," he added.
"Even if we boycott playing the World Cup final against Pakistan, the country must stand together, there can't be a difference of opinions," said Gambhir.
"There should not be any backlash for the decision taken," the former India opening batsman added.
