According to ICC rules, a player can not sport as part of his attire any commercial, religious or military logo.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday put a rest to the ongoing glove row by turning down the BCCI's request to allow Dhoni to continue wearing the army insignia on his wicket-keeping gloves.
The ICC Clothing and Equipment Regulations, Regulation D.1 clearly specifies the logo which can and cannot be displayed. "In addition to this, the logo also breaches the regulations in relation to what is permitted on wicketkeeper gloves".
India supporters took to Twitter to complain about the decision with the hashtag #DhoniKeepTheGlove, forcing the government to weigh in and demand action from its own cricket board. The dagger is similar to the regimental emblem.
Indian team performed exceptionally well in their first match with a successful six-wicket win over Proteas at Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Southampton on June 5th.

'But when the issue is related to the country's sentiments, then the interest of the nation has to be kept in mind. "Moeen Ali was fined by the European Central Bank when he was wearing a wristband supporting a particular cause in 2014", Gavaskar said. The ECB said Moeen's actions were humanitarian rather than political, but the ICC's view was that it was inappropriate for the field of play.
As per the rules, Dhoni would be reprimanded if he wore the gloves with the insignia on Sunday, when India face Australia in their second group match.
