In the third ODI between India and Australia in Ranchi, every member of the Indian team wore camouflage cap, paying homage to 44 CRPF soldiers who were martyred in the Pulwama attack. Along with this, all the players donated their own match fees to the martyrs' family.
After the match, Pakistan asked the ICC to take action against the BCCI. But according to a recent report, the ICC has confirmed that the Indian team had taken the permission from the ICC to wear the Army-cap during the match.
It was not the first time that any team has worn something on the field to support some cause. Australia also plays Pink Test to spread awareness about breast cancer. A few months ago, in the Test match in Sydney, when Virat Kohli came to bat, he had a pink-colored sticker and grip on his bat.
"The world saw that the Indian cricket team wore military cap instead of their own, did the ICC not see this? We think that it is the ICC's responsibility to take notice of this without the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) bringing it up," Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was quoted as saying by Pakistani Media.
The Minister asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to hold up a protest against India. Nonetheless, even if the PCB files an objection, the ICC, having given India consent, will doubtlessly not engage it.
