Team India wears camouflaged caps to honour armed forces

Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field first in the third One-day global against Australia in Ranchi on Friday.

Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry Friday expressed hope that the International Cricket Council (ICC) would take action against India for politicising the gentleman's game of cricket by distributing army camouflage caps among its players ahead of the third one-day international (ODI) against Australia.

India's seniormost player Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be "rested" for the final two ODIs of the ongoing series against Australia and Friday's match in Ranchi could well be his last worldwide outing on home soil. He himself distributed the cap among the players. "Every player of our team will also donate his entire match fee to the defense fund of the country".

"This is a special cap, it's a tribute to the armed forces", said Kohli, who urged others to support the families. The former captain was conferred the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel by the Indian Territorial Army in 2011. A senior officer of BCCI told IANS, "It's fitting that the start of this annual event is being done at the home town of Lt. Col. Dhoni because it is not a superficial event but a honest one. To me, today's symbolic act depicting solidarity with the forces is more powerful than the one involving monetary donation by the BCCI".
