Why Didn’t The England Cricket Team Not Wear The Black Arm Band To Honour Kolkata Dead?

Published on 4 April, 2016 at 7:06 pm By

Days before the T20 World Cup final between West Indies and England, Sourav Ganguly had asked the players of the two teams to wear black arm bands in the memory of those who died in the Kolkata flyover collapse.

On the day of the final, the players from the Caribbean were spotted with black arm bands on their shoulders like Dinesh Ramadin here.
