Recently, the Indian National Cricket Team wore specially designed Army caps for the 3rd ODI game against Australia at Ranchi. The match took place in the home town of the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is a lieutenant colonel in the Indian Army. Meanwhile, various controversies raised after that but Colin Ingram doesn’t see any wrong in it.
Colin Ingram is one of the few players to visit Pakistan for the final phase of the Pakistan Super League. The South African all-rounder, who signed Kolpak was asked to express his opinion regarding India’s latest scenario of donning Army caps.
I respect their feelings – Colin Ingram
The flamboyant cricket was pretty smart in answering the query by the journalist. Ingram quoted that he has seen something like these back home, which united the people in the country. Further, he wants to respect the decision taken by India for their armed forces. Meanwhile, he also quoted that they are focussed on playing PSL in Pakistan.
Recently, Pakistani foreign minister found this gesture highly offensive and said that the Indian team was politicizing the issue and found support from Pakistan’s information minister, who said that the Pakistani board should complain to the ICC.
However, later, it comes to know that the Indian team has already taken permission from the International Cricket Council, which brought the end-card on the issue.

Last month, India lost the lives of the 44 CRPF soldiers in a terrorist attack at Pulawama. The incident took place when a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the bus they were travelling in. This is one of the worst terror strikes in the state since the Uri attack in 2016.
It was the tough attack to swallow for the Indians, who asked India to boycott Pakistan in every possible way. In between, Indian Air Force thrashed the terrorist camps, who had a base in Pakistan through air strikes. As per the reports, at least 300 terrorists are killed in the heroic act.
Meanwhile, a lot of individuals have pushed themselves to donate something for the families of the martyrs family. Regarding the same, the current Indian team gave their match fees to the national fund and played with Army caps in the 3rd ODI game at Ranchi.
