15 Best Fan Reaction as ICC Denies MSD Permission to Wear Gloves

Although Mahendra Singh Dhoni received appreciation from across the world for sporting an Indian Army insignia on his gloves during the India-South Africa World Cup match, the International Cricket Council (ICC) seems to have other ideas. The governing body, on Thursday, requested the BCCI to have the badge removed, citing that it was against its regulations.

The revelation was made by the ICC General Manager – Strategic Communications Claire Furlong, who informed PTI that the apex body had handed a formal request to the Indian cricket board to have the insignia removed. India’s will be playing their next game against Australia on Sunday.

“It is against the regulations and we have requested it is removed,” Furlong told PTI.

When asked whether Dhoni, who happens to be a Honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of Territorial Army, could be penalised for breaching an ICC regulation, she added: “For first breach no, just a request to remove“.

The regimental dagger insignia of the para forces in question was embossed on his green wicket-keeping gloves.

While it is very much possible that Dhoni may worn these gloves earlier, but it only became a talking point when cameras captured the closeups of MSD during the match. Soon after it was spotted, social media was buzzing with the fans loving the veteran cricketer’s unique way of paying tribute to the armed forces.

Here is how Twitter reacted on ICC’s controversial decision:
