Pulwama attack terrorized the world, especially the families of the Martyred Indian army. Even though the government came up with specific plans, the cricketers decided to pay a special and national tribute today.
The tribute plays an important role today since it is the woman’s day. The females of the army families would specifically feel valued and cared that have been suffering from separation from their husbands or sons. This is the truest way to celebrate and honor the woman’s day internationally.
What’s the news?
At first, MS Dhoni handed over the camouflage cap to Virat Kohli before the tossing began today. Virat Kohli went for the toss while wearing this specific cap, and India won. Still, they urged for Australia to bat first.

The Indian Army is currently playing against Australian team members in Ranchi wearing the same camouflage cap in the third ODI. In such a way, the Indian Army started to pay tribute to the individual fallen Army officers in the Pulwama attack.
Virat Kohli said, “This is a special cap, it’s a tribute to the Armed forces.
Along with that, the Indian Army would also be paying or more likely donating the match fee that will be obtained after playing this particular match. They will donate the money to the National Defence Fund. The money will further be used by the government to help the Martyr’s family.

Virat Added during the toss, “We’re all donating our match fees of this game to the families of the martyrs. I urge everyone in the country to do the same and stick to the families of our armed forces.”
Before the actual match started, Virat Kohli urged the Indians to donate some money to the National Defence Fund for the Army.
“Every member of the team will donate match fees to National Defense Fund. I also urge every Indian to make a contribution to NDF, to support families of our martyrs.” #INDvsAUS #Pulwama pic.twitter.com/3IJ8YJOey2

Indians are specifically proud of Cricketers for the initiative taken by them today in the form of a national tribute. The match is still on, and your favorite team members will be found playing in the field with the camouflage cap. They would also give away their fee to the Martyr’s family. The Indian cricketers also urge you to donate some money to the families and needy people. Would you do it?
