For a batsman, items permitted are a protective helmet, external leg guards (batting pads), batting gloves and, if visible, forearm guards.
So batting gloves are permitted (as everyone know). Now inner gloves are not necessary to wear. But some batsmen and wicket keepers wear it for absorb the sweat and more grip.
From this post:
Many batsmen and wicket keepers opt wearing an extra thin pair of gloves called inners beneath their batting or wicket keeping gloves. This is primarily intended to absorb the sweat and perspiration. Many international cricket stars wear inners as batsmen find them helpful in gripping the bat more firmly and wicket keepers find inners useful for neatly collecting the ball behind the stumps.
So it is fully permitted to wear inner gloves for batsmen too. You can also search for such equipment on Google.
Yes, it is allowed to wear inner gloves and there are some players(like Nasir Hussain, Alec Stewart and Rahul Dravid) having the habit of wearing them.

Yes it is allowed for a player to wear the inner gloves, however there is no restriction in terms of wearing inner gloves while batting,wicket keeping, but the fielding team(except wicket keeper ) is not allowed to wear the inner gloves.
