LONDON: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has struck down BCCI’s request for wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to sport the regimental dagger insignia of the Indian Para Special Forces on his ‘keeping gloves at the ongoing ICC World Cup in England and Wales. The BCCI on Friday had sent a request to the game’s world body to make an exception because the insignia was not ‘religious, military, or commercial’ in nature. However, the ICC has refused to budge on the matter. “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,” the ICC statement said on Friday. The rule-book allows for only one sponsor’s logos on the wicket-keeping gloves. In Dhoni’s case, he already sports an SG logo on his gloves.
