Indian public hardly cares for such trivialities. There is a huge section of fans here who cheer for Pakistan when they play some other country than India (yours truly included).The decision was completely political and need not necessarily reflect the Indian public's attitude towards Pakistani cricket.
It was India who first cancelled the test series with Pakistan. I personally feel things should cool down more before any cricketing contact gets re established between the two nations. Good to see good fan base in India for Pakistan and it was quite visible during ICL.
