Fawad Chaudhry urges ICC to take notice against India for 'politicising' cricket

Taking an exception to the gesture, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the International Cricket Council must do something about it. He is the second government official to point out the "politicisation of the gentleman's game".

During the third ODI of the ongoing Australia's tour of India at Ranchi, the Indian cricketers were seen wearing camouflage caps as a tribute to the martyred soldiers of the unfortunate Pulwama attack. I, as the captain of the team, would urge everyone in the country to do the same, donate how much ever they can to the National Defence Fund and help in the education and well-being of the families and the children of those who lost their lives in the attack.

The Indian team was wearing army caps to pay tribute to their armed forces, a move criticized by cricket lovers across the world.

"It's just not cricket", Chaudhry tweeted late on Friday. "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.

But she did not appear for breakfast and when her parents went to check on her they found her ill in bed. That is why we want to thank you for all the attractive messages and for your honest and loving support.

Many in Pakistan, including journalists Owais Tohid and Mazhar Abbas echoed similar views.

India failed to secure the ODI series after Australia hit back to reduce their lead to just a single game as Virat Kohli's 123 proved in vain as he again lacked support from his teammates with his side falling to a 32-run defeat. "Sports can defuse tension but not like this".

Home to the IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab, Mohali was in danger of losing out the ODI between India and Australia after the ghastly Pulwama terror attacks in February raised security concerns.
