MS Dhoni was siply wearing the badge of paras on his gloves. M S Dhoni is Leitunent Colonel with TA. What’s the fuss Mr. Chaudhary? Calm down.”

According to ICC clothing rules and regulations, it does not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an international match.
The ICC is still looking at the issue and if reports are to be believed it is very unlikely that the international cricketing body will change its stance.
