After Indian players wore military caps in a cricket match against Australia, Pakistan has demanded that the International Cricket Council (ICC) should take note of the players wearing camouflage caps during a match. The country officials have accused Virat Kohli & Co. of politicising the game.

The Indian players had worn military caps in their match against Australia as a tribute to the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulawama terrorist attack. Alongside, they had also dedicated a day's salary to the martyrs' family.

The world saw that the Indian cricket team wore military caps instead of their own, did ICC not see this? We think that it is the ICC's responsibility to take notice of this without the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) bringing it up," Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told Pakistan media. 

The minister also asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to lodge a formal complaint with ICC  India had lost the match by 32 runs but still lead the five-match series 2-1.
