Former India skipper MS Dhoni is currently posted in Jammu & Kashmir serving for his battalion in Territorial Army. He completed his army stint earlier today in Leh and caught the flight back home. Meanwhile, before heading back, the legendary cricketer was seen playing cricket with the young children in the newly formed Union Territory Leh.
Dhoni is currently on a two-month break from cricket after a dismal ICC World Cup 2019 campaign. MS Dhoni received severe criticism from the fan and former cricketer for his slow batting which has hurt the team badly. There were speculations that he might retire from cricket, but there have been no indications of that as of yet. However, as per popular perception, the Jharkhand-born cricketer who is in the twilight of his career will be with the team till the World T20 next year and help young Rishabh Pant groom before bidding farewell to the game.
