A major row has erupted on social media after the world cricketing body ICC asked the Indian cricket board to ask Mahendra Singh Dhoni to not wear his wicket-keeping gloves with the army insignia. The army insignia used by Dhoni in the last match is his regimental dagger that signifies the ‘sacrifices’ made by the Indian Para Special Forces.

Dhoni was granted an honourary commission by the 106 Infantry Battalion (Territorial Army) Para Regiment to become a Colonel Paratrooper in 2015.

The news of the ICC expressing its displeasure over Dhoni using his regimental dagger sign on a cricket pitch did not go down well with his Indian fans on social media.





Earlier this year, the Indian team members including Dhoni had courted controversy after they chose to wear army caps during an ODI against Australia at Ranchi to pay their tribute to slain CRPF soldiers, who were killed in the 14 February Pulwama terror attack.
