The International Cricket Council (ICC) has requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for removal of an Indian army badge (insignia) from former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s gloves, Indian media reported on Thursday (June 6).
The army insignia ‘Balidaan Badge’ was seen on the wicket keeper’s gloves during India’s World Cup opener. “We have requested the BCCI to get it removed,” ICC’s Strategic Communications General Manager Claire Furlong told an Indian private media channel.
Earlier this year in March, the Indian cricket team had worn camouflage caps during a ODI match against Australia in Ranchi “as [a] mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces”.
