All ten captains of the teams participating in the ICC World Cup 2019 met in the Bakingem Palace with Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth on Wednesday, just before the opening ceremony. They looked stunned and could look dressed in the best formal clothing. However, Pakistani captain Sarfaraz Ahmed chose another alternative. He chose traditional clothes in combination with that blazer.
Of course, many fans from Pakistan were proud and claimed that Ahmed supported the culture and heritage of his homeland by wearing traditional clothes to meet the queen, especially since each other captain was uniformly dressed in Western formal clothing.

However, there were also those who raised and cried about how Ahmed violated the official protocol or did not maintain jurisdiction. At the top of the list was columnist Tarek Fateh, whose tweet provoked a lot of controversy.
He read: "Captains # Cricket Cricket of the Nation to compete 4 # CricketVorldCup had a photo with the Queen. Guess who came dressed in his pajamas? No one except captain from Pakistan (back row, left)."

He later added another twitter: "Every other captain, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, South Africa, New Zealand, West India and Zimbabwe smartly appeared in jackets and ties but not in Pakistan. , I'm not surprised he did not come to his Lungi-Banian-Topi costume.
Every other captain, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, South Africa, New Zealand, West India and Zimbabwe smartly appeared in jackets and ties but not in Pakistan. No, sir, not him. I'm surprised he did not come to his Lungi-Banian-Topi costume. How to …?

It's the twenty-first century, and embarrassing someone for choosing clothes is no longer cool. So what if Amhed chooses to wear his national clothes? Desi Twitter feels the same. As soon as Fateh released a tweet, several Indian fans came to the rescue and defended him:
I did not expect this from you. Mahatma Gandhi met the king in London at Dota. His advisers called him not to do that, he replied that I wanted to show that the king robbed me in my country, I have nothing to do with luxury.

I'm different about this. what is the damage if someone dresses in his country's dress. Why is it necessary to wear a suit in England? If so, would any foreigner visiting PM Modi should essentially carry a curfew? and alternately, all the ladies should wear a skirt in England?

I think it's good
He is a comfortable, well-dressed and representative of his country.
No question, sir

Once I see nothing wrong with this …
It would be ideal if all the captains had dressed up their native "poshaake" …
Does the queen wear a saree when she comes to visit the heads of state? Or do her grandchildren and nuns keep other dress cultures? Not! 🙂

"We should not judge the book by the covers."
You should judge him for his talent in the field, not in his pajamas.

I always support and agree and quietly understand your logical feelings, but I think that I will confess to him that his culture is his pride. But I see the point you are trying to do … but the boss … that they stand alone.
Ps. I am Hindu and born INDIAN.

I do not see absolutely anything bad about it. He is dressed well, looks good, accepts his culture, he is confident enough to wear what is pleasing to him. There is no reason for any queues for the queen.

What's wrong with wearing his national dress? In fact, I want Virat to make sense or a real tip to wear his national dress!

As many Indians have commented, there is absolutely nothing to wear national uniforms. If he is comfortable with it, then how does that make a difference at all?
