Pakistan demands ICC action against India for wearing military cap

Pakistan demands ICC action against India for wearing military cap

It's as old as the Partition itself. Tensions emerged between India and Pakistan after the Pulwama attack on 14 February.

The Indian cricket team extended a special gesture towards the Armed Forces and the martyrs of the Pulwama attack as captain Virat Kohli announced at the toss during India's third ODI against Australia in Ranchi on March 8 that all the team members will be donating their match fees to the National Defence Fund.

Taking an exception to the gesture, Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the International Cricket Council must do something about it.

European Central Bank argued that the bands made a humanitarian statement rather than a political one, but ICC said in reply in 2014 that, "The ICC equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an worldwide match". "I am delighted that I will be watching another match in this cricket ground", Ammar Ali, a student, told Arab News. "It's just not Cricket", Chaudhry tweeted in the evening, attaching a picture which showed Indian cricketers wearing the cap.

By wearing the caps, the Indian team has politicised the Gentleman's Game, Dawn quoted the Information Minister as saying.

Pakistan's High Commissioner to India meets PM Imran Khan
Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria reached Islamabad on Saturday and will resume office soon, sources told ANI. The JeM had taken the responsibility of the attack in the view of which tensions between India and Pakistan flared up.

Recalling the move by India against Pakistan in the ICC and World Cup, Mani said that by indulging in such behaviour for a second time they have hurt their credibility and standing in the cricket world.

In what was considered as a heartening gesture, it seems to have not gone well with a couple of ministers from Pakistan.

"The world saw that the Indian cricket team wore military caps instead of their own, did ICC not see this?"

Saturday's match, which proved to be one of the most exciting PSL contests this year, was largely dominated by Cameron Delport who played a blitzing innings and helped Islamabad United set a huge target of 239 runs for the rival team.
