Cricket World Cup | ICC tells wicketkeeper Dhoni: Logo has to go

Updated : 2019-06-08 12:04:17

MS Dhoni won't be allowed to wear a military-style logo on his wicketkeeping gloves at the World Cup after the International Cricket Council rejected a request from India. The Hindustan Times newspaper reported on the debate over Dhoni's appearance with the "Balidaan Badge" — an army insignia — on the back of his green gloves during India's opening World Cup win over South Africa in Southampton on Wednesday. The ICC issued a statement Friday saying it had advised Indian team officials that the logo was not permitted on Dhoni's gloves. India's next game is against defending champion Australia on Sunday in London.
