Mumbai: India and Pakistan are set to clash on June 16 at Manchester in one of the most anticipated games of the mega-event.

According to reports, Pakistan wanted to celebrate India's wickets in a different manner during their clash in World Cup 2019, in retaliation to Men in Blue wearing army caps during an ODI match against Australia in March.

 

Saj Sadiq, editor of Pakistan site 'Pak Passion', on Friday, tweeted that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reportedly turned down a request from Sarfaraz Ahmed and his team in which they had expressed their wish to celebrate India's wickets 'differently'.

Virat Kohli and Co had sported the camouflage caps against Australia in Ranchi, after Pulwama terrorist attack in which 40 CRPF jawans had lost their lives.

Saj Sadiq also tweeted that the PCB has told its players to stick to cricket and turned down a request from Sarfaraz Ahmed and his team to celebrate India's wickets in a different manner.

He also said that PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, while turning down the request, said, "We will not resort to what the other party has done. There could be sporadic celebrations in case of a hundred, like Misbah-ul-Haq's push-ups during the Lord's Test in 2016 which was a tribute to the army, but nothing different at the fall of a wicket."

 

Meanwhile, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to get the Army insignia removed from Dhoni's gloves which he was seen sporting during India's World Cup opener against South Africa.
