Dhoni in breach of ICC rules: ICC turns down BCCI’s request

June 8, 2019

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has turned down BCCI’s request to reconsider the world governing body of cricket’s objection to M.S. Dhoni’s wicket-keeping gloves.
Dhoni had sported an army crest on his wicket-keeping gloves during India’s World Cup 2019 opener against South Africa. The ICC requested BCCI to ask Dhoni to remove the army crest from his gloves. The Indian Cricket Board wrote to the ICC seeking permission to let Dhoni wear those gloves in India’s next match against Australia at the Oval on Sunday. However, the request has been turned down by the ICC. The ICC responded to BCCI’s letter explaining Dhoni’s act as breach of Clause G1 (personal messages) as well as logos allowed on wicket keeping gloves and as such should not be worn.
