LONDON: India's MS Dhoni took the sphere with no debatable dagger emblem on his wicket-keeping gloves in Sunday's World Cup game against Australia after being ordered to remove the symbol through cricket's governing body.

Dhoni's gloves within the opening game against South Africa bore an apparent army insignia that breached laws laid down through the International Cricket Council.


But a unique pair of gloves looked as if it would conform with ICC rules when India fielded after making 352 for 5 batting first against world champions Australia on the Oval.

The ICC became down a request through the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to allow Dhoni to sport the symbol that received well-liked attention on tv and on social media in India, with #DhoniStayTheGlove trending on Twitter.

According to the World Cup clothes and kit rules handbook, simplest two manufacturer identifications can also be sported on the again of each and every glove.


Also, any emblems should not have any political or racial connotations.


Dhoni is an honorary lieutenant colonel in India's Parachute Regiment.


In March, the India staff wore camouflage-style caps equipped through Dhoni right through a one-day game against Australia as a tribute to India's militia after 40 troops had been killed in a suicide bomb attack in Kashmir.


The ICC has in the past ruled against avid gamers making political statements and in 2104 the worldwide governing body banned England all-rounder Moeen Ali from wearing wristbands announcing "Save Gaza" and "Free Palestine".
