#DhoniKeepTheGlove: Twitterati supports Dhoni; calls for World Cup boycott if the Balidaan badge is removed
Fans are showing their wrath on Twitter and supporting Dhoni.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni was spotted with regimental dagger – Army Insignia or ‘Balidaan’ badge – of the Indian Para Special Forces on his wicket-keeping gloves. Now, International Cricket Council (ICC) wants the badge removed from Dhoni’s gloves and has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to get it done.
Dhoni is a patriot and we all know this. He holds the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment. Now his patriotism has become a concern for ICC and they have asked to remove the badge. This didn’t go well with the Indians specially Dhoni’s fans. They showed their disapproval and poured in with their tweets for him on Twitter. #DhoniKeepTheGlove is trending now on Twitter slamming ICC.
Here are the tweets.

#DhoniKeepTheGlove @msdhoni keep the gloves. @ICC the symbol has nothing to do with Cricket rules. Why England can wear three lions and Pakistan can offer namaz on the field which is actually a religious thing. @BCCI we will boycott the #WorldCup2019

If ICC is Too Interested In Removing Things Then They Should Firstly Remove Terrorist Nation/Poor Umpires Then Anything Else !

These are a few tweets only. You can see a number of such tweets with #DhoniKeepTheGlove.
I don’t understand what’s wrong if an Indian Army is showing his love for the nation through the honour he has received.
Do you think ICC should have not asked to do so? Let us know.
