Indian cricketers honour slain soldiers

Afp, Ranchi

The Indian cricket team wore military camouflage caps in their one-day game against Australia on Friday to pay tribute to 40 paramilitary troops killed in a suicide bomb attack in disputed Kashmir.

Virat Kohli's team will also donate their $8,500 match fees from the game -- being played in the eastern city of Ranchi -- to a fund for the families of those killed in last month's attack.

Former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni handed out the caps -- which bore the logo of the Board of Control for Cricket in India -- to his teammates in a simple ceremony before the game.

"This is a special cap, it's a tribute to the armed forces," said Kohli, who urged others to support the families.

Tit-for-tat air strikes and an aerial dogfight followed the February 14 suicide attack, igniting fears of an all-out conflict, but the crisis appeared to ease when Pakistan returned an Indian pilot who was shot down and captured.
