Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Anurag Thakur on Friday ruled out any possibility of resumption of cricketing ties between India and Pakistan.

"Priority is to expose Pak as country which sponsors terrorism. No question of playing cricket which such a nation," Thakur said, days after suspected militants killed 18 Indian soldiers in Uri sector of Indian-held Kashmir.

There was talk of a short bilateral series late last year but plans were shelved after the Indian and Pakistani governments failed to come to a conclusion on the venue.

Tentative dates for the series comprising three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two T20 Internationals (T20Is) were scheduled for December 15-January 4 or December 19-January 4 but the matches were never played.
