ICC apologised to India for insult to the tri-colour at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali on Wednesday.

According to sources, an ICC official tramped on a balloon which had the Indian national colour while objecting to sale of merchandise by an unauthorised vendor outside the stadium during the second semi-final between India and Pakistan in the ongoing World Cup.

“We apologise for this unacceptable behaviour to every single Indian,” The ICC spokesman said.
