HIGHLIGHTS
    • India will be up against Australia on March 10 in Mohali. 
    • Usman Khawaja made his first ton in third ODI. 
    • BCCI has rested MS Dhoni of the remainder of the series. 

Was it just the donning of a camouflaged military cap, or an act with a broader impact against the backdrop of the heightened espousing of nationalism in recent times? Was it an act of affectionate concordance towards CRPF jawans or just a little more than that? Was it a thank giving gratitude or the hour requirement?

A lot of thoughts piled at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) in Ranchi – yes at a cricket stadium. JSCA was surrounded with a lot of emotions, inclined towards one thought – was the gesture by the Indian team good or bad?

On this, a lot of opinions came and populous too to the twitter to express their thoughts. On this, NewsNation brings to you two opposite sides of this story.

Here are the tweets:

Meanwhile, the two teams will lock horns against each other for the fourth one-day International in Mohali on March 10. India, on one hand, will look to bounce back and take an unassailable lead in this five-match ODI series. Australia, on the other, will look to continue their winning momentum and square the series.

Usman Khawaja was awarded as the man of the match in the third encounter for scoring a maiden ton in the fifth encounter.
