One of my prized possessions is a boonie military hat given to my father by an American friend, who was once deployed in Vietnam. It was Lieutenant Colonel Dhoni’s idea, in fact, to wear combat caps during the third One-day International against Australia. He even pontificates on how players need to first earn the India team colours, and then wear it with respect. Cricketers wearing combat caps comes across as a noble thought. By wearing combat caps, the Indian cricketers are leaving their action open to interpretation.
