Despite the intense pressure the ICC stuck by its stand and has rejected BCCI’s request for wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to sport the insignia of the army on his ’keeping gloves .
The ICC statement is as follows :
“The ICC has responded to the BCCI to confirm the logo displayed by MS Dhoni in the previous match is not permitted to be worn on his wicket-keeping gloves at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019. The regulations for ICC events do not permit any individual message or logo to be displayed on any items of clothing or equipment. In addition to this, the logo also breaches the regulations in relation to what is permitted on wicketkeeper gloves”.
