The Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) has removed pictures of former Pakistani cricketers from its stadium in view of public sentiments after the Pulwama terror attack, a senior official said Wednesday.
The photos of former Pakistan cricket team captain and now Prime Minister Imran Khan, batting legend Javed Miandad and some other players were removed from the VCA Stadium at Jamtha three days ago, VCA president Anand Jaiswal told PTI.
These photos were kept at the press box and other non-public areas in the stadium, he said.
