ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Friday expressed the hope that the International Cricket Council (ICC) would take action against Indian cricket team for politicizing the gentleman’s game of cricket by distributing army camouflage caps among its players ahead of the third One Day International (ODI) against Australia.
In a Tweet, the information minister asked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to formally lodge a protest with the ICC on the matter.
“It’s just not Cricket,” Chaudhry tweeted in the evening, adding that by wearing the caps, the Indian team had politicised the Gentleman’s Game.
