    That was the ECB's fault. It's clear that ECB don't like their players wearing that. BCCI has no problem with our cricketers supporting the Army. Kohli has done nothing wrong here.

    Unacceptable. Kohli is playing to the gallery for some cheap self promotion and he should be banned as Moeen Ali was... this is a test of the ICCís resolve and if they can stand up to India!

    ICC should take charge as the governing body and take action against individuals

    Like in other sports there should be no room for political statements and affiliations in cricket


    If pakistan cricket is to move forward they need to stop going back

    I know that. But the ECB couldn't care less either way. They didn't protest that decision strongly enough. Anyway Kohli is wearing a military cap but there is no actual statement on it.

    If the ECB "didn't like him wearing that" as you claimed previously they wouldn't have clearn him to worn it when he came to them initially for permission. The ICC started an investigation and rather than telling him to just it off to clear the issue the ECB actually backed him to carry on wearing them until the match referre finally stepped in.

    There is nothing political about supporting one's army. Players have worn armbands to condole death of political leaders.

    They are not opposing any person or organisation or country.They are supporting their own country.

    As most of the people in this thread don't want sports to be mixed with anything, I hope they request cricketers to stop doing Sajda and stop starting every sentence with Inshaallah, Mashaallah and Alhamdolillah. Why bring religion in to sports?

    It is political because nationalism is a political ideology.

    Two key differences that we cannot ignore:

    (1) Moeen was expressing his support for the people of Palestine out of his own will. Since he was the only English player to do so, it was clear that the ECB did not endorse or promote it.

    Here, all the Indian players are wearing these caps. Hence, it is a BCCI decision - the Indian players were not acting out of their own accord.

    (2) Moeen was supporting a religious cause. He is not Palestinian and does not have Palestinian lineage. His only connection with the people of Palestine is Islam. Here, the Indian players are supporting their country. It hardly different to the Remembrance poppy that no seems to have a problem with.

    It is futile to juxtapose the two gestures. The Indian players have done nothing wrong and I don't see why we should have a problem with it.

    We already have a defined set of parameters, from which the sport is played. I'm not saying that nationalism per se is wrong, but it is a political ideology and currently there seem to be ICC rules against such use of caps and wristbands. If there's any further legislation approved by the ICC which makes wearing army caps appropriate to commemorate military losses than it'll be within the rules, until than I don't think it is.

    Unnecessary shenanigans on part of India. Not such a big deal honestly, though it would be if the match was against Pakistan. At best it warrants a reprimand for dress code violation from the ICC.

    Agreed and since its an ODI, hopefully it's only a one off event.

    Not surprising, as India have been bringing politics into sports for ages now and show no sign of maturing.

    I hope Pakistan wears the PAF caps on the India vs Pakistan world cup match. The earnings from the match should go to the 2 army personnel martyred on the LOC last week. Plus we will end up paying homage to our PAF which makes lives of intruders miserable. Suret its a non political gesture.

    Here are some facts for you - we refused tour India in 1991, 1993 and 1994 due to politicians tensions as well as a protest to the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. Moreover, we refused to play in the 1990/1991 Asia Cup which was hosted by India.

    More recently, we blocked our players from participating in IPL 2009 because India accused us of orchestrating Mumbai attacks. However, that stunt backfired big time because India responded by permanently banning our players from IPL.

    We have a knack for rewriting history, but let's not be ridiculous. Pakistan and Pakistani fans should be the last country (and the last fans) on earth to complain about India or any other country for mixing politics with sport. We were the ones who set the precedence.

    They should carry the drink with tank, balls should be cannon colour, bats should have weapon pictures, drink break they should show what Indian Mirage 2000 did in Pakistan border, umpires should dress like Lieutenants, Put some bush around the boundary to make more war zone. Not a bad idea to get the choreograph from Hollywood movie producer.

    Thanks for coming out of retirement to explain the important concept. I am sure you understand that you are actually comparing apples and oranges. Every country has a right to stop their citizens travelling to a place where their security is threatened. All the incidents you mentioned had that factor. Despite PCB and its cricketers not being mature enough, we havenít done anything half as stupid as this.

    I hope the Pakistan cricket team wears arm bands saying save Kashmir and caps with the PAF logos on it. We should also bring back our old slogans in the crowd..enough of this jeet lo dil bakwaas. Clear militaristic fascist jingoism going on here. Just shows how right wing fascism has seeped into every pore of India. Similar to other right wing societies in the past!!

    Whats ironic is Indians go around talking about how Pakistanis are militaristic and under the thumb of their army etc..ab yay dekho..whats next RSS armbands and special hand gestures before the match..?? we should not shake their hands on the day and keep our nicey nice gestures for other teams..Time to go back to the "cricket jihad" days of sharjah...and our slogans like Pakistan ka matlab kya and our naaray takbirs!! and Naaray haideris!!

    The whole initiative is taken up by Dhoni and he is the one who presented the caps to all the players before the match.

    Don't attempt to justify Pakistan's decision based on a technicality. On all those occasions, the Indian govt. assured us that strict security measures will be taken to protect our players. In fact, up until 2009, the general consensus was that terrorists will not attack sportsmen. However, what happened to the Sri Lankans in Lahore changed that perception forever.

    If Pakistan did not intend to mix politics with sports, they should have toured India out of goodwill. The same fans who justify Pakistan's decision to not trust India's security in the 90's are the ones who now complain that other countries are not taking our word that we will provide them with foolproof security, even though we allowed the Sri Lankan attack to happen.

    In the 90's, PCB had more influence and we were able to throw our weight around in 93 and 94 as world champions. Now, PCB has very little influence so we should not complain when BCCI and other boards/countries are giving us a taste of our own medicine.

    By (1) accusing others of mixing politics with sport and (2) complaining that others are not trusting our security measures, we are simply showing our hypocrisy.

    Scratch that, Dhoni is wearing one now.

    Btw, isn't this a political stance? If it is then surely they'll get fined?

    Ok hang on there before you diverge from the topic. We did tour India out of sheer goodwill in 99 only to have them not reciprocate that goodwill and snub us. One can safely assume had we shown goodwill earlier, the same would have happened.

    Security is everyones right, and it doesnít matter if someone complains about it. The teams are rightfully not sent unless comprehensive security plans are drawn up and shared.

    Now coming back to on the field display of politics, as i said, that has not happened with Pakistan before. We have had our issues but we still take sport as it should be taken or atleast we have matured quicker than others.

    Here, all the Indian players are wearing these caps. Hence, it is a BCCI decision - the Indian players were not acting out of their own accord.

    (2) Moeen was supporting a religious cause. He is not Palestinian and does not have Palestinian lineage. His only connection with the people of Palestine is Islam. Here, the Indian players are supporting their country. It hardly different to the Remembrance poppy that no seems to have a problem with.

    It is futile to juxtapose the two gestures. The Indian players have done nothing wrong and I don't see why we should have a problem with it.
    Lol Palestine is not a religious cause. Shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. Stick to getting sadistic pleasure each time Pakistan loses
