Shiv Sena to protest during Pak series

Mumbai, Dec 22: Shiv Sena has expressed their displeasure over the arch-rivals touring our nation for the upcoming T20 and ODI series starting Dec 25 and has revealed that they would disrupt the action.

"Balasaheb Thackeray had taken this stand that unless Pakistan stops terror activities emanating from its soil, we would continue to oppose them playing cricket in India," Senior party leader Manohar Joshi was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror.

Earlier there were reports on the Shiv Sena chief, Balasaheb Thackeray accusing the BCCI for squeezing in another series with the arch-rivals by betraying the country for money.

Pakistan cricketers are expected to reach Bangalore on Saturday evening for the first T20 on Dec 25 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, while Shiv Sena has said that it would protest at all match venues.

Pakistan touring the country after five years, are looking forward to revive cricketing ties with India while BCCI has also ensured that the two countries could be on good terms earlier this year.

Cricketing ties with Pakistan was stopped after the terror attacks on Mumbai in 2008.
