Pakistan cricket fans have expressed their desire to wear military caps or shirts during the PSL Final to express solidarity with the Pakistan Army. A campaign started by some of the cricket fans to wear military shirts or caps.
All Pakistanis are requested to wear military caps in the PSL final, this is the opportunity to let the Pakistani people do not let it go waste. سب پاکستانی بھائیوں سے گزارش ہیں پی ایس ایل کے فائنل میں فوجی ٹوپیاں پہن کے جائے مہربانی یہی موقع ہیں پاکستانی قوم کے پاس اسے ضائع نہ

India wore a military cap in the third one-day match against Australia, which is an open violation of the ICC rules. The only thing that India did to do this is to reduce Pakistan only. The fans who are looking to see the PSL final will wear a clean army cap and go to the stadium

However, the Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) took to his twitter account that he actually respects the emotions and feelings of the cricket fans for the Pakistan Army. But he has advised them not to wear military style shirts and caps. According to him, supports are beyond politics. He stated,
“Dear Pakistanis you are desirous to put on military style caps/shits during PSL Final. Pak armed forces humbly acknowledge your love and support. Sports are beyond politics & we believe that our bondage is beyond such gestures alone.”
He further advised Pakistanis to enjoy the game in “City of Lights”.
