No, The rules are very clear, the wicket keeper is the only player allowed to wear gloves. All other players would incur a 5 run penalty every time they touched the ball while wearing gloves. This includes for instance taking off your hat in order to use it to catch the ball

Suppose we have an ODI match between Team A and Team B. Team B batted first and scored 300 / 6 in 50 overs. After 49.5 overs, Team A reaches 300 / 9. Player X, who is on strike, is on 98. He wants to complete his century. In the following situation, what happens:

A legal ball is bowled, and the the batsman hits it straight to a fielder at long on.
Both the batsmen start running and complete a run.
Player X turns back for another run.
His partner is busy celebrating their win and does not turn back.
The fielder throws the ball towards the bowler's end.
Player X, seeing that his partner is not turning back, tries to return back.
It's a direct hit, and Player X is out.
The score is now 301 / 10, and Team A has won, but by how many wickets? 0?
