After India's exit from World Cup 2019, MS Dhoni has been in the headlines. After India's ouster, speculation was rife that MS Dhoni would call time on his glittering limited-overs career. But nothing materialized since he maintained silence. Fans waited with bated breath for India's squad announcement for the West Indies tour, hoping there would be some communique from the BCCI or chief selector MSK Prasad regarding MS Dhoni's future. While nothing came on MS Dhoni's retirement, MSK Prasad confirmed that the former India captain had opted out of the Windies tour to serve the Territorial Army unit of the Parachute Regiment. Many have had their say on Dhoni's decision from David Lloyd to Gautam Gambhir and now adding to that list West Indies pacer Sheldon Cottrell also said something about him.
Recently, West Indies fast bowler took to Twitter to post a heartfelt message for Dhoni. He salutes the wicketkeeper-batsman for showing an inspirational kind of love for country and partner.
The left-arm pacer, in his first tweet, saluted Dhoni for not only being an inspiration on the cricket field but for also being a patriot.
Dhoni, as a part of Victor Force, will be with the unit in the Kashmir Valley. It was also made clear that as requested by the officer and approved by Army Headquarters, MS Dhoni will be taking on the duties of patrolling, guard and post duty and would be staying with the troops.
Army Chief General Bipin Rawat recently said that MS Dhoni is well-equipped to perform his duties with the Army and he will be performing the role of a protector like any other soldier.
