how does Newton actually say that balanced forces cause motion ?
When viewed in an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force
What if the applied forces by each team in the tug of war game was equal ? In that case,none of the team wins or collapses,right ?
What I can't understand is if the forces are equally exerted on an object,then they are still said to be in motion as said by Newton.

Static forces still exert a force. If the forces are balanced there is no motion, if they are unbalanced there is motion.
Mild correction to hopefully avoid confusion.
