World Cup 2019: ICC asks MS Dhoni to remove army insignia from his gloves

International Cricket Council (ICC) has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to get the ‘Balidaan Badge’ or the regimental dagger insignia of the Indian Para Special Forces removed from Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wicket-keeping gloves.

The “Balidaan Badge” or the Army insignia was spotted on MS Dhoni’s gloves while playing a match against SA on 5th of June.

Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Strategic Communications, said that the BCCI has been asked to get the symbol removed from Dhoni’s gloves. “We have requested the BCCI to get it removed,” she said.

The rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC), clearly state that “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.”

Pakistani federal minister Ch. Fawad Hussain has also criticized Singh Dhoni’s wicket-keeping gloves. By taking it to social media he wrote:
“Dhoni is in England to play cricket not to for MahaBharta , what an idiotic debate in Indian Media,a section of Indian media is so obsessed with War they should be sent to Syria, Afghanistan Or Rawanda as mercenaries”.

MS Dhoni currently holds the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Division of the terrestrial army.

It will be interesting to see if the Indian keeper still dons the same pair of gloves or not when India takes on the in-form Australian side on the 9th of June.
