Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajiv Shukla also supported Dhoni on this issue and said that the former captain did not violate any of the ICC rules by playing badges. “There is no business, religious or political propaganda. The three provisions that the ICC has mentioned are not being violated by Dhoni.

He further said that the move by COA to request the ICC to wear Dhoni “the right way”.
Responding to the development, ICC Strategic Communications General Manager Claire Firlong said, “Until now, I do not know. The ICC will need to consider this.”

Claire confirmed on Thursday that the International Cricket Council had called the BCCI “to remove the symbol”.
