India vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Saturday refused to comment on the Mahendra Singh Dhoni gloves controversy, saying it will be there for everyone to see whether the former captain sports the regimental dagger insignia on his keeping gloves during India’s clash against Australia on Sunday.

“I don’t know what is happening with that (the gloves controversy), I have nothing to say. Maybe you’ll see tomorrow,” Rohit told reporters on the eve of India’s World Cup clash against defending champions Australia.

India’s opening game in the ongoing World Cup against South Africa on Wednesday saw Dhoni once again profess his love for the security forces after he was spotted with the regimental dagger insignia of the Indian Para Special Forces on his wicketkeeping gloves.

While the BCCI asked the ICC to allow Dhoni to continue sporting the insignia, the game’s governing body rejected the plea, saying that the regulations for ICC events didn’t permit any individual message and that the logo also breached the regulations in relation to what was permitted on wicketkeeping gloves.
