It's rather frowned on in England, though it happens occasionally. The
usual excuse given is that the batsman's county-logoed helmet got hit
(and you're not supposed to use a helmet after it's been hit very hard
by a ball because it is inevitably weakened by the impact) and he
hasn't had time to get a replacement.
There's absolutely no excuse, though, for wearing an international cap
in a non-international game (except a benefit or festival shindig, in
which case it may be almost required).
