Pakistan protests India’s cricket team military caps

The Pakistan Cricket Board has written a letter of complaint to the International Cricket Council over hats worn by the Indian team.

India's players wore military-style camouflage caps in Friday's third one-day international against Australia in Ranchi.

India say they wore the caps in tribute to the country's armed forces following the killing of at least 40 paramilitaries in a suicide attack in the disputed region of Kashmir on 14 February.

The attack was claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group.

PCB chairman Essan Mani said he has written to the ICC to protest against the caps, saying India had "tried to use cricket for politics".
