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.

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 already have a 2-0 lead over Australia in the ongoing five-match ODI series over Australia, as they would look to seal the series with another win in the ongoing third ODI in Ranchi.
While India beat Australia by six wickets in the opening ODI in Hyderabad, the second ODI saw them winning by eight runs in Nagpur.
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.
