The series is at stake. (With Inputs: PTI) New Delhi : The International Cricket Council (ICC) Monday 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. In the third ODI in Ranchi on March 8, 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.”The BCCI sought permission from the ICC to wear the caps as part of a fundraising drive and in memory of fallen soldiers who have died, which was granted,” ICC’s General Manager Strategic Communications Claire Furlong said in a statement.The Pakistan Cricket Board had sent a strongly-worded letter to the ICC, calling for action against India for wearing the caps.”They took permission from ICC for some other purpose and used it to do something else, which is not acceptable,” PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said on Sunday in Karachi. The final ODI between two sides is scheduled to be played on March 13 in Delhi. Indian players had worn the army-style caps in the third ODI. This will be India’s last game before the World Cup.  highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
