Legendary cricketer Javed Miandad wore Army cap during his visit to Pindi Stadium on Day 1 of the opening Test to show his love for the Pakistan Army.
Miandad clarified that he didn’t do this to answer in any way to the Indian team who put their army caps in an ODI against Australia earlier this year when India and Pakistan were going through political tensions.
“I wore an army cap just to show love for my army, and nothing else. I wanted to be a soldier and I used to wear such caps often during my childhood,
“Virat Kohli and the Indian team wore army cap for fulfilling political means but I didn’t,” he said while talking to a cricket website.
It must be noted here that Miandad along with Sri Lanka’s Bandula Warnapura was invited on Day 1 of the opening Test. He interacted with the fans in the stadium and clicked selfies with them.
