New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday supported government's decision in not allowing the Indian cricket team to participate in the Asian Test Cricket Championship match against Pakistan in Lahore in September but felt that future Indo-Pak matches could be played depending on prevailing situation.[an error occurred while processing this directive] "We support the government decision not to play in the Asian Test Championship against Pakistan in Lahore though India would play in South Asian Federation Games to be held in Pakistan", party spokesman V K Malhotra told reporters here.He said the decision not to play the Test match was taken as there were reports of threat to the safety and security of Indian players.Malhotra said unlike the SAF Games, there was always the possibility of more tension in cricket as it is a direct contest between the two countries and emotions run high on such occasions."In cricket, it is between two teams whereas in SAF Games more than one country is participating and there is no direct contest," he said.
