    Given that terrorists spread terror among a civilian population, it is up to interpretation who are the terrorists in the IOK debacle.

    Can you give us some advice so we can all be as confident as you? Pakistan are ranked #7 in tests (India #1), and #5 in ODIs (India #2). Just got thrashed twice by India B in the Asia cup. Got thrashed in ODIs in NZ and SA where India won 4-1 and 5-1 respectively. Lost in tests at home to SL and NZ. Despite all that you have the confidence to berate India after a single loss.

    If India was doing that badly, I certainly wouldn't be able to come here and post about a match Pakistan lost.

    You forgot to mention gold plated and diamond encrusted bats that every Indian player use to play.

    Acceptable: Wearing an item of clothing as a tribute to victims from a terrorist attack or natural disaster

    Ok then, the people of kashmir are suffering from a terrorist attack everyday, in the name of BSF Jawans:
    If this is different why did you bring it up?

    There you go again WarCry - who's carrying out the attacks on the Kashmiri people?

    He wasn't activated.

    We activate our agents only when India conduct Subzi-cal Strikes.

    Maybe having Tomatoes energy drink made out of extra inventory of Tomatoes that India banned to be sold to Pakistan would help newly inducted Army of cricket against Pakistani agents.

    Pakistan is over all a happy nation.

    Pakistanis are happier than Indians.

    That's according to the recently published World Happiness Report, which ranks Pakistan in the 80th position, and India in the 122nd position.

    I'm sorry to hear that. However, again - as I mentioned in the post you quoted - since cricketers can't protest against the Israeli government on the cricket field they can't protest against the Indian or any other government on the cricket field either.

    Factually incorrect.

    Palestine is 93% Muslim and 6% Chrsitian.


    West bank is 80% Muslim, whereas Gaza in 98% muslim.

    State of Israel is 2% christian and 17% muslim.

    If you see Palestine = West Bank + Gaza + State of Israel, then also Muslims to Christian ratio is nearly 100 to 1.

    How wrong can you be

    I guess it's okay to support Labour/Conservatives...I guess it's okay to have something to do with Brexit, well because it's an issue for the UK.

    I should've read the small-print in the ICC statements.

    I've read some excuses but this is up there

    This has Dhoni written all over it. Game was in his home town and hes an army man. Air Force I think. He never said anything before and this is his way to pay tribute.

    Oh, they wanted to make sure they win (seemed like a guarantee after the first couple of games) the game with the caps and not look like IAF on the ground

    quite a few players banned due to involving political statements and gestures on the field. I think some fine is necessary. As many have pointed out, Moen Ali was banned of a tiny wrist band. This is a whole cap and a whole team wore it. ICC should look into this.

    Itís over the top and politically motivated.

    I donít have a problem with it but then the ICC should not be able to pick and choose political sportswear it allows players to wear.

    Itís embarassing that they lost the match however. Kind of like the black clothing worn in the NBA to make the game ďa funeralĒ. (Wizards vs. Celtics 2017).

    Disagree.

    If it was Ghambir then Iíd believe in what you said.

    This has BCCI and GOI written all over.

    It has to do with a sitting PM trying to malign every institution in India to promote nationalism to gain support.

    Problem in mainstream in India is
    1) Bollywood
    2) Ambani
    3) Cricket
    4) Army
    5) Media

    All of them are interconnected. And they have to show exaggerated nationalistic support at all costs.
    And then all of their Twitter messages have to end with Jai Hind.

    The issue is deep rooted now and regardless of BJP in power or out of power
    Exaggerated nationalism and far right attitude will dictate India for long time.

    India will continue with its wet dream of hagemony and dominance over pre-partitioned countries.

    Never in my wildest dream thought that one day one of the most educated country in sub-continent would be the easiest to fool by their politicians.

    Doesn't look good when we lose while wearing it. Army caps should be respected and shouldn't be given to any tom, d!ck and harry. Hopefully we won't repeat this mistake again in the future.

    Supporting army members who were killed in a terrorist attack (which by definition is not political) is fine.

    They haven't brought in any of the politics etc. It's a fact that these men died and their families need support etc, so don't see anything wrong here.

    Exactly. I don't know why Gavaskar didn't object to it. He will lose his cool if any tom, d!ck and harry wears Indian Cricket Team's cap.

    A lot of rubbish being said here by Pakistani posters. While I'm not a big fan of any kind of military worship, it's their team and their army. If they want to pay tribute to their army, they can do it.

    I'm quite sure that if the Pakistani team had done the same for our army, PP would've been totally fine with it. This is a non-issue, really.

    Honestly, I would love to see camouflaged Pakistani kit for the next series as well. They are more or less our colors so it wouldn't be much of a departure.

    I find it hilarious and it is frankly sad that people are rejoicing on some guy scoring a 100 and calling him has our own.If he was your own he would be playing for Pakistan.

    Islam is not property of Pakistan nor non Pakistani muslim players doing well should be reason for any celebrations from Pakistani fans . If those non Pakistani Muslim players are hailed based on their game it is fine but if they are hailed just becuase they happened to be followers of Islam is sad.

    India lost match big deal, they have won every odi series they played by thumping every team.Losing one match is now a big deal??

    I don't mind the Indian team wanting to respect their military.

    However the reasoning that it is in tribute to those slain in the Pulwama attack is suspect.

    Pulwama happened on 14th Feb. The first match after the attack was a T20I on 24th Feb. Why not pay the respects then instead of weeks later on March 8th ?

    Precisely, either this is an afterthought or it's more to do with the conflict with Pakistan rather than Pulwama.

    Not sure why the Pakistanis are upset with it. Indian team paid tribute for their fallen soldiers through a gesture. Did any of them say anything about Pakistan in the after match speeches? Why is everyone getting their undies twisted? Sports teams even wear black arm bands when there is a loss. It's just a symbolic gesture and Pakistan team wasn't even involved. I would have understood the outrage if Indians did this while playing Pakistan in the world cup. This is some jamodi game against Australia in Dhoni's home town. If it was GOI or BCCI behind this, they would have done this in the first game. That man Dhoni is dignified and tried to show his tribute to army this way without any outlandish speeches. People should just relax instead of getting obsessed with simple things like this.

    All said and done it is a lovely sight that the Indian batting is failing like no tomorrow just before the WC. Long may it continue. Now if only Kohli can also join the rest of his team in being a dud then that will be great.

    No one will be ashamed. BCCI can say whatever they want. They are a private body funded indirectly by millions of fans. They played to their crowd and put up a show about banning Pakistan. Everybody knew what the result would be and ICC rightly said they are not the authority and put an end to it. BCCI will still mint billions, fans will still watch with feverish pitch, Indian team will continue to play well. I liked this tribute compared to idiots like Chahal and co. Mouthing off stuff. It was a professional tribute and Indian players and citizens wearing an army cap shouldn't bother anyone.

    "Indian" players showing their solidarity and support with "Indian army" on an "Indian cricket ground" with BCCI permission is ruffling PP'ers and
    is compared Moeen showing support for Gaza wearing English cap and without ECB permission...and more hilarious is Moeen has no relation with Palestine even remotely.

    If India was doing that badly, I certainly wouldn't be able to come here and post about a match Pakistan lost.
    I wouldn't care if this was any other match. The army caps made India a target today and they are rightfully getting laughed at.

    As for confidence, we all know what happened the last time India came across Pakistan in an ICC tournament. No wonder there is talk of forfeiting the match.

    Exactly. The timing is strange. I don't think they even wore black armbands during that game and if they did, what was the need for wearing the caps today? This has Modi's fingerprints all over it.

    However, I respect Kohli for making it clear that the caps were a fundraising effort for the families of the dead, and do not symbolize support for the actions of the military itself. That makes it quite acceptable for me, at least.

    What Pakistan did here was not political. Inzamam helped arrange a boot camp for the players before this tour and that is what this is referring to.

    I already gave the reason, the reason you are cheering a player just because he is muslim is sad.Khawaja, Ali and Amla cheer them their greatness not for their religion.Pakistanis say don't mix sports and politics but they think its okay to mix everything into religion.

    Like I said, you gave no reason for WHY it is sad or any different for cheering for someone just because he was born in the same country as you.

    (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 at point number 2. Supporting Palestine is a humane cause , it doesn't necessarily have to do anything with religion.

If it was for Pulwama, it wouldn't, or shouldn't have taken them almost a month to do it, considering that India played matches previously.

    Indian Army losing battle on all fronts. No doubt if they would have won they would have said this was a battlefield and India has beaten its enemy and honored its Army. All types of jingoism would have been pumped thru the indian media, it's hilarious to see them get embarrassed over the past few weeks, Keep it up India
