Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is busy performing his military duty in Jammu and Kashmir, continued to make all the right noises. After he was seen playing volleyball with members of his Territorial Army battalion and polishing shoes, another video is making rounds on social media where the 38-year-old is seen singing evergreen Bollywood song, “main pal do pal ka shayar hun” from the movie “Kabhi Kabhie”.
Dhoni started serving his regiment from July 30. “Lt. Col Dhoni arrived here today and has joined his unit,” one of the officials had said last Tuesday. He will be staying with his 106 TA Battalion (Para) till August 15 and has undertaken duties of patrolling, guarding and post duties with the troops.
The Territorial Army is a reservist force that draws on civilians who can do short stints to assist the military.
The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has taken a two-month break from the Indian team and was therefore not included in the squad for the ongoing West Indies tour. Virat Kohli and boys have taken a 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series with the last game set to be played on Tuesday.
