The Pakistan Cricket Board has written to the International Cricket Council calling for action to be taken after India's players wore military-style camouflage caps in Friday's third one-day international against Australia in Ranchi.
After allowing India to post 358 despite a five-wicket haul for Pat Cummins, the Australians got off to the worst possible start when Aaron Finch fell for a duck and he was soon followed by Shaun Marsh for just six but Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb started the fightback.
Rohit clubbed a couple of sixes and seven boundaries to inch close to his century before his front-foot pull off Jhye Richardson found Handscomb at midwicket. It's nice to get an opportunity to play for Australia and take it.
There are a few caveats to the Mohali result, not least the dew irritating India's bowlers, and the fact that the hosts, with MS Dhoni rested, are in World Cup preparation mode having settled on their preferred "signature" long ago. On the other hand, Yuzvendra Chahal conceded 80 runs from his quota of 10 overs which is now the joint-second for an Indian spinner in an ODI.
- Dhawan has now scored 16 centuries in ODIs which is the fourth-most for any Indian player.

In all likelihood, that will end Mark Ingram's tenure in New Orleans after eight seasons. Previous reporting indicated that Ingram's most likely landing spot is Baltimore.
In Basseterre, Saint Kitts and Nevis, David Willey spearheaded another rout of an indisciplined West Indies batting lineup as England completed a 3-0 sweep of the series with an eight-wicket victory in the third and final Twenty20 global.
- Handscomb brought up his maiden ODI hundred at Mohali.
Kohli did not fare well in the fourth ODI as he managed to score only 7 runs.
The right-handed batsman struggled for runs in the home test series against India and was subsequently dropped for the two tests against Sri Lanka. This has come about in the year of a World Cup where high scoring and judicious use of Twenty20 skills at pivotal times in the 50-over game will doubtless be critical to the outcome. They had won on all previous 23 occasions.
"We do not want to see the shoulder of cricket being used for politics", the PCB chief said, revealing that they will be writing a letter to the ICC to protest India's movie within the next 12 hours.
