Pakistan Demands ICC Action against India

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-03-09

Pakistan’s level of insecurity is on another level as it never stops taking a dig at India. Pakistan has demanded that the ICC take note of Indian cricketers wearing camouflage military caps during the 3rd ODI against Australia, accusing Virat kohli’s team of politicising the game.

The Indian team sported the Army cap and also donated their match fees for the welfare of the families of the martyrs as a mark of respect to the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulwama terrorist attack.

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

"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," Qureshi was quoted as saying by Pakistan media.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry echoed Qureshi's sentiment. "It's just not Cricket," Chaudhry tweeted in the evening, attaching a picture which showed Indian cricketers wearing the cap. "And if the Indian team will not be stopped, Pak cricket team should wear black bands to remind The World about Indian atrocities in Kashmir," Chaudhry wrote.

The minister urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to lodge a formal protest against India with the sport's world governing body. At least 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives in the suicide attack on February 14, the responsibility of which was taken by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.

India had lost the match by 32 runs but still lead the five-match series 2-1.
