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.
