Team India captain said Virat Kohli said that they are wearing the special cap for the match to pay respect to the martyrs and their families of the Pulwama attack, and all the players of the team have decided to donate their match fees to the National Defence Fund. He also urged everyone in the country to do the same, to donate as per individual capacities to the Defence Fund and help in education and well being of the children and families of those who lost their lives in the terror attack. “Yeah it is a very special cap and this will be a very special game indeed”, Kohli added.

The caps are specially designed for Team India, they are made using camouflage fabric and have the BCCI logo embroidered on them. The caps were distributed to members of the commentary team as well.

India is leading the series with 2-0 against Australia, having won the first two matches at Hyderabad and Nagpur. Before that Australia has won the two T20 games. Today India has won the toss and elected to bowl first.
