Having given his all to cricket, MS Dhoni is now serving the country by joining the Indian Army, and it's a decision that is being applauded by his peers from other nations as well.
West Indies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell, for instance, shared a video of Dhoni being conferred with the Padma Bhushan last year and saluted his spirit of working for his countrymen.
I shared this video with friends and family because they know how I feel about honour but the moment between wife and husband truly shows an inspirational kind of love for country and partner. Please enjoy as I did. pic.twitter.com/Pre28KWAFD— Sheldon Cotterell (@SaluteCotterell) July 28, 2019
This man is an inspiration on the cricket field. But he is also a patriot and a man that gives to his country beyond duty. I have been at home in Jamaica with my boys these past weeks and had time to reflect (1/2)— Sheldon Cotterell (@SaluteCotterell) July 28, 2019
This gesture by Cottrell earned him fans in India, who appreciate him for saying kind words for their favourite cricketer.

Hailing from Jamaica, Cottrell also serves the army of his country. And the pride associated with that could be seen every time he celebrated a wicket with a military-style salute to the pavillion.
