Taking an exception to the gesture, Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the International Cricket Council must do something about it.

Qureshi was speaking to the media in Sukkur.

And things seemed to have cooled down just well enough before the Indian cricket team donned camouflaged military caps, while playing the third ODI against Australia. He is the second government official to point out the "politicisation of the gentleman's game". Apart from donating their match fees, all the members in the Indian squad - players, coaches and support staff alike - wore army camouflage caps as a sign of respect to those who lost their lives in the tragic incident. In his tweet, Chaudhry mentioned that whatever happened was more than cricket and accused the Indian team of politicizing cricket. "We think that it is the ICC's responsibility to take notice of this without the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) bringing it up", Qureshi was quoted as saying by Pakistan media.

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain in a tweet stated that the move made by the Indian cricketers was "just not cricket" and he hoped that "ICC will take action for politicising the gentleman's game".

Nuclear exchange between Pakistan, India most likely
He said Pakistan desires to sort out all issues with India which are hindering peace between the two countries. After the attack, the Indian Air Force bombed a Jaish-e-Mohammed training facility in Pakistan's Balakot .

"And if the Indian team does not stop wearing the caps, the Pakistan team 'should (also) wear black bands to remind the World about Indian atrocities in (occupied) Kashmir", Chaudhry said. "Heroes shouldn't act like losers", he added.

Mani said that Pakistan's stance is very clear that cricket must not be used for politics. During a press conference, a Pakistani journalist Shoaib Jatt chose to put Ingram in a spot and asked him about his views on Indian team wearing the Army-themed caps and is bringing politics in cricket is right from the Indian team.

The development came as Pakistan and India reeled from two weeks of high tension following the Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 paramilitary troopers.
