Pakistan calls for action against Indian cricket team for sporting military caps

  • India took permission to wear camouflage caps in memory of fallen soldiers ICC clarifies

Former captain MS Dhoni, who has held the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel since November 2011, distributed the caps to his teammates before the start of the game. He has asked the ICC to take note of the deed without being reminded by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to do so.

Despite the complaint, an ICC spokesperson confirmed that India sought the go-ahead to wear the caps as a mark of respect to the dead. "They took permission from ICC for some other objective and used it to do something else, which is not acceptable", PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, also a former ICC president, was quoted as saying in Karachi on Sunday. "Their (India) credibility in the cricketing world has gone down very badly". We're all donating our match fees of this game to the National Defence Fund. "All the players have chose to donate their match fees from this particular game to the National Defence Fund". He called the army camouflage caps "very special".

Mani, however, insisted that ICC should take "strong action" against India, especially as there was already precedent for the same. While the European Central Bank had defended Moeen's stance, describing his actions as humanitarian rather than political, match referee David Boon had reminded Moeen of the ICC's clothing and equipment regulations.

Mani said the ICC had in the past acted against England all-rounder Moeen Ali and South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir for breaching ICC clothing and equipment regulations to make political statements.

She told reporters she had only learned that morning that she would be freed. "She can leave now", he said. Kim was the eldest son in the current generation of North Korea's ruling family.

"We want the ICC to take similar sort of action against the Indians". The permission they took was for a different goal but they acted differently.

"We will be sending another letter to the ICC in next 12 hours after more consultations with our lawyers", he added.

The Indian cricketers wore the headgear in their T20 match with Australia in solidarity with the CRPF members who were killed in the February 14 attack in the Pulwama district of India, for which the Pakistani Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility.

BCCI officials did not bring up the request at a recent ICC board meeting but it was brought up - and turned down - by the ICC head Shashank Manohar.
