Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor on Friday night trolled Indian cricket team for wearing army caps in third One Day International (ODI) against Australia.

The director general of ISPR tweeted it after Indian cricket team wore military caps, mixing politics with sports once again and violating the ICC code of conduct.

The Indian cricket team wore the caps in context of recent tensions with Pakistan over Pulwama bombings during which India violated Pakistani airspace on February 26 and in retaliation Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down two Indian fighting jets and captured one pilot, Abhinandan.

Although Pakistan has extended hand for peace on multiple occasions, including releasing the captured pilot but India has not responded to the gesture positively.
