India granted permission to wear caps in memory of fallen soldiers: ICC


The International Cricket Council (ICC) said India was granted permission to wear camouflage military caps in the third ODI against Australia as a tribute to the country's armed forces, a gesture which Pakistan has objected to.

On 8th of this month in Ranchi, the Indian team sported military caps as a mark of respect to the CRPF personnel who were killed in the Pulwama terror attack and donated its match fee to the National Defence Fund.

ICC's General Manager Strategic Communications Claire Furlong said in a statement that the BCCI sought permission, which was granted.

Last month, the BCCI had asked the ICC to "sever ties with countries from which terrorism emanates" following the Pulwama attack. (AIR)
