International Cricket Council has reportedly requested British authorities to declare Lord's Cricket Ground "no-fly zone" during the World Cup final between England and New Zealand after flags with political messages related to Balochistan and Kashmir were flown with aircraft at various incidents during the past matches.

Banners reading "#Justice for Kashmir" and "India Stop Genocide & Free Kashmir" were flown over Headingley stadium during India's World Cup clash with Sri Lanka on July 6.

The same incident took place at the same venue on June 29, during Pakistan-Afghanistan match when a banner was flown over the stadium that said 'Justice for Balochistan'. However, ICC has claimed that it does not tolerate any kind of political intervention in its functioning and is against supporting such kinds of political messages.
