The Delhi unit of Shiv Sena on Sunday threatened not to allow the sixth one-dayer between India and Pakistan to be played in the capital on April 17.

"The Indo-Pak match in Delhi will not be allowed to take place at any cost," Delhi unit chief Jai Bhagwan Goel was quoted as having told a gathering of party activists in New Delhi, according to a Shiv Sena release.

Goel said this at the inauguration of a district office of the outfit in Mayur Vihar in East Delhi.

"While Pakistan is sending terrorists belonging to outfits like the Lashker-e-Toiba with the aim of destabilising out country, Government of India has invited the Pakistani cricket team here and holding matches, which is an example of our government's twisted thinking," he said.

Shiv Sena has been opposing Pakistan taking part in sporting activities in India. The party activists had last month attempted to dig up the pitch in Mohali, which is hosting the opening Indo-Pak Test from Tuesday.
