India cricket team wore the military camouflage caps against Australia in their third ODI, a match which they lost. India says, they wore the military camouflage caps in commendation to Indian military forced in the wake of pulwama terror attack but in fact they tried to impose war on Pakistan. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani has requested to International Cricket Council (ICC) to take action against Indian cricket team.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India asked the ICC before the match for military caps and ICC confirmed that permission had been given because it was part of charity. An ICC spokesperson said: “The BCCI sought permission from the ICC to wear the caps as part of a fundraising drive and in memory of soldiers who have died, which was granted.”
Chairman Ehsan Mani pointed out two examples– English cricketer Moeen Ali who wore wristbands for “Save Gaza” and “Free Palestine” in a test in 2014, and South Africa spinner Imran Tahir who displayed a T-shirt of religious preacher Junaid Jamshed in 2017.
Chairman Mani said: “You have two examples from the past already, Where both Imran Tahir and Moeen Ali were sanctioned for something similar.” Ptv Sports Also provided the bad defeat of Indian team.
“The ICC had taken strong action against them and we have sought similar action against India. The permission they took was for a different purpose but they acted differently.”
The BCCI has been trying to segregate Pakistan in cricket world. Now they involved politics in game, but such gesture will insulate India in cricket world. Games should be used for tranquility not for war.
Fawad Chaudhry tweeted: “It’s just not Cricket”, I hope ICC ll take action for politicising Gentleman’s game … if Indian Cricket team ll not be stopped, Pak Cricket team should wear black bands to remind The World about Indian atrocities in Kashmir… I urge #PCB to lodge formal protest.” Subscribe our team for more Sports News.
