Mumbai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s love for Indian Army knows no limits. And, he has shown it again when he donned the regimental dagger insignia of the Indian para-military Special force on his gloves during the World Cup match versus the Proteas.

In the midst of the match Dhoni was spotted wearing the army gloves, during that time only his pictures went viral and the MS Dhoni fans erupted and applauded the former captain on Twitter for paying tribute to the Indian para-military Special forces.

 

This gesture of Dhoni melted the hearts of the twitteratis:

During 2011, MS Dhoni was conferred the post of honorary lieutenant colonel in the Territorial Army. He then got commissioned into the 106 Para TA batallion. Dhoni also had gone through the para basic course in Agra and had completed para jumps, which fetched him his parachute wings.

 

Dhoni was also seen with the same insignia logo in the recently concluded IPL.
