Request Dhoni to remove Army insignia from gloves: ICC to BCCI

MS Dhoni had sent internet life into overdrive by donning wicket-keeping gloves which demonstrated the symbol of one of the Indian Army units during India's World Cup 2019 opening match against South Africa in Southampton on Wednesday. Be that as it may, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has not warmly embraced MS Dhoni's motion and approached the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to get the decoration ousted from Dhoni's gloves.

The ICC guidelines state, "The ICC equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an international match."

Addressing columnists, Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Strategic Communications, said that the BCCI has been approached to get the regalia removed from Dhoni's gloves. "We have mentioned the BCCI to get it removed," she spoke

The emblem, which was unmistaken in notice when MS Dhoni stumpedAndile Phehlukwayo, symbolizes the regimental blade of the Indian Para Special Forces.

The 'Balidaan Badge' or the Army emblem was spotted on Dhoni's gloves as replays demonstrated him stumping Phehlukwayo in the 40th over of the innings bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal.
