  • Mahendra Singh Dhoni sporting an Army insignia on his gloves during the India-South Africa clash was well appreciated by fans on Twitter but the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to have it removed, saying it was against its regulations.
