Kashmir: Dhoni welcomed with ‘Boom, Boom Afridi’ chant
MS Dhoni has been having some great time off the field as he is currently in Kashmir serving the Indian army. The former Indian captain, who is Honorary Lieutenant Colonel is now on duty with the 106 TA Batallion (Para) of the Indian Army in Kashmir.
He has taken a two-month leave from the game only to serve in the army. He will be staying in the valley till August 15th. He has always been selfless when it comes to serving India with lots of pride was recently spotted playing volleyball with the other soldiers in Kashmir.
Then a photo of him started doing the rounds on social media platforms where he was seen polishing his shoes.
Then Captain Cool turned singer as he was heard singing a famous Bollywood song to entertain the soldiers after which he got a big round of applause.
While most of the supporters showered praise on MS Dhoni’s decision to serve the army, it appears that some people in Kashmir are not his fans at all.
The World Cup-winning skipper was in Baramulla when some locals chipped in with a strange name. As soon as they spotted MS Dhoni in the army dress, they started shouting the name of Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi.
Here’s the full video of the incident:

The former Indian captain is expected to be back in full swing in international cricket. India are more than likely to recall him when they invite South Africa in upcoming September after the end of West Indies assignment.
The wicketkeeper-batsman came under fire for his dull knocks in the World Cup tournament. While going about his business, he has been scoring runs at a slow pace.
Despite all that criticism, the team-management is still banking on the services of Dhoni in futuristic assignment.
