Team India pays tribute to armed forces with camouflage caps
Team India, on Friday, paid tribute to the armed forces by wearing special camouflage caps, during the third ODI against Australia at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. The move comes in support of the martyrs who were killed during the deadly Pulwama terror attack on February 14. Notably, India lead the five-match series 2-0 and a win today would seal the series.

One of the deadly terror attacks on Indian armed forces
On February 14, a suicide bomber, who was vehicle-borne, attacked a convoy carrying Indian military personnel in the Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir. The explosion killed 40 CRPF personnel, along with the attacker, while Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack has since led to political tensions between the countries, while India's World Cup tie against Pakistan is doubtful.

India elect to field in Ranchi
As far as the third ODI is concerned, India elected to field against Australia, considering the dew factor in the evening, while also going in with an unchanged playing XI from the opening two games. As for Australia, they have made only one change, bringing in pacer Jhye Richardson for Nathan Coulter-Nile, who has gone back home for the birth of his child.
