International tournament rules and Personal messages.In the ongoing cricket world cup, MS Dhoni has been wearing gloves with the military insignia that has created a controversy. Wearing it is a symbol of patriotism or support for our armed forces but the ICC has a different view. It has requested MS Dhoni not to wear gloves with personal messages.
So has Chris Gayle, he has been using the log 'Universe Boss' on his bat. Again ICC has rejected Gayle's plea and has asked him to remove this logo.
We have seen sportspersons wearing a black armband or a pink cap or even a camouflage cap during international events. The question is can one individual display such images/messages that are personal or country related or should he or she focus on the game and stick to the governing body rules and regulations (in this case - ICC)?
