Cricket News Mixed Reaction on Twitter: The Army Style Cap – An act of gratitude or espousing of nationalism?

first_imgIndia will be up against Australia on March 10 in Mohali. Usman Khawaja made his first ton in third ODI. BCCI has rested MS Dhoni of the remainder of the series.  New Delhi: Was it just the donning of a camouflaged military cap, or an act with a broader impact against the backdrop of the heightened espousing of nationalism in recent times? Was it an act of affectionate concordance towards CRPF jawans or just a little more than that? Was it a thank giving gratitude or the hour requirement?A lot of thoughts piled at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) in Ranchi – yes at a cricket stadium. JSCA was surrounded with a lot of emotions, inclined towards one thought – was the gesture by the Indian team good or bad?On this, a lot of opinions came and populous too to the twitter to express their thoughts. On this, NewsNation brings to you two opposite sides of this story.Here are the tweets: For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights A Pakistan born Australian has scored a hundred against India the day they decided to sport camouflage caps to show solidarity with their armed forces🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/WBdKYVcvmb— Raja ®|© راجہ (@OyeRaja) March 8, 2019Meanwhile, the two teams will lock horns against each other for the fourth one-day International in Mohali on March 10.

Australia, on the other, will look to continue their winning momentum and square the series.Usman Khawaja was awarded as the man of the match in the third encounter for scoring a maiden ton in the fifth encounter.  If this is a new trend of @ICC to show one’s power in ground,Pakistan must take advantage of it for #Kashmir.

Starring alongside O’Connell, Gleeson and Wittrock are Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment, Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.”Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 10-time Oscar (R)-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall). Academy Award (R) winners Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men) rewrote the screenplay from earlier drafts by William Nicholson (Les Misérables) and Richard LaGravenese (HBO’s Behind the Candelabra).last_img read more
