Former India captain MS Dhoni is currently busy serving a two-month stint with the Territorial Army in Kashmir.
Dhoni – an honorary Lieutenant Colonel – is on duty with the 106 TA Batallion (Para) of the Indian Army in the Northernmost region.
MSD, who has a wide fan following across the globe, has been selfless when it comes to serving his country. With Kashmir being on the edge after the government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 – which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir – Dhoni once witnessed a rather hostile reception during his visit to in the Baramulla district.
An old video has resurfaced on social media in from Kashmir when Dhoni was received with ‘boom boom Afridi’ chants.

The date mentioned in the above video is 27th November 2017 but a sports anchor from Pakistan, Mohammed Faizan Najeeb, has shared it on his Twitter handle now to attract the attention of fans.
Meanwhile, Dhoni will be staying in the Valley till 15th August. His return to international cricket is still unknown. However, reports indicate that he may be recalled for the home series against South Africa in September after the conclusion of the ongoing tour of West Indies.
India will play three T20Is against the Proteas before locking horns in as many numbers of Tests.
