Indian cricketers wear military caps to honour slain soldiers

The Indian cricket team wore military camouflage caps in their One Day International game against Australia on Friday March 08,2019 to pay tribute to 40 paramilitary troops killed in a suicide bomb attack in disputed Kashmir.
Kohli’s team will also donate their $8,500 match fees from the game — being played in the eastern city of Ranchi — to a fund for the families of those killed in last month’s attack.
Former captain Dhoni handed out the caps — which bore the logo of the Board of Control for Cricket in India — to his teammates in a simple ceremony before the game.
“This is a special cap they have wore during match, it’s a tribute to the armed forces,” said Virat Kohli, who urged others people to support the families.
Tit-for-tat air strikes and an aerial dogfight followed the Feb. 14 suicide attack, igniting fears of an all-out conflict, but the crisis appeared to ease when Pakistan returned an Indian pilot Abhi Nandon who was shot down and captured.
There has been a national outpouring of support for the military in India and calls for further action against Pakistan.
Some People in India’s cricket establishment say the country should boycott its World Cup game  against Pakistan in England in June 2019.
