With ICC and BCCI in a tussle over the Army symbol on the gloves of MS Dhoni, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has instructed its players to stay focused on cricket and no special celebrations during its match against India.

If reports are to be believed, 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 ‘differently’ in retaliation to Kohli and Co. wearing army caps during an ODI against Australia in March

Pakistan senior journalist Saj sadiq while quoting OPCB Chairman Ehsan Mani tweeted, “”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”.

Pakistan is facing Sri Lanka in its third match of the ICC Cricket World Cup today but the weather has delayed the start.
