After Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has in recent days tried unsuccessfully to isolate Pakistan in the cricketing world, and even after failed attempt of India to hit Pakistan, now Indian team dragged politics into sports by wearing army camouflage caps in an ODI against Australia.
But unfortunately India once again face defeat even in sports as Australia beat India by 32 runs in the third one-day international in Ranchi on Friday (March 8) to keep the five-match series alive. Fast bowlers Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson and leg-spinner Adam Zampa took three wickets each to dismiss the hosts for 281 in 48.2 overs. Australia made 313-5 in their 50 overs.
The idea to sport the olive-and-black caps bearing the BCCI’s logo came from former Indian cricket captain and current player Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of the game’s biggest stars and an honorary lieutenant colonel with the Indian army.
