No anti-glare patches for Shiv at the World Cup

The West Indies’ left-hander Shivnarine Chanderpaul will not be allowed to display branded anti-glare patches beneath his eyes during the ICC cricket World Cup 2011 to be played in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The ICC guidelines for endorsements and commercials specify that the players cannot display branded anti-glare patches or tattoos beneath the eyes during the World Cup. The note has been sent to all international cricketers.

Chanderpaul has been displaying the ‘Mueller’ brand anti-glare patches beneath his eyes for many years. Another West Indian who uses anti-glare patches is Narsingh Deonarine. He’s not in the team for the World Cup.

Anti-glare patches are supposed to reduce light entering the peripheral area of the eyes. Players can use anti-glare patches, but not with brands or logos.
