Amidst MS Dhoni joining the Para Military Forces, a businessman Anand Mahindra made perfect use of it to market his Mahindra XUV 500 cars. He also received praises from the fans for his smartness to market. Anand Mahindra fully deserves the compliments, as he was spot on with his witty tweet.
After making himself unavailable for the ODI and T20I format of the game against Windies, the ex-skipper of the Indian National Cricket Team MS Dhoni has made a request to the Indian Army to allow him to train alongside the Batallion for 2 months Parachute Regiment.
Although Dhoni will not be a part of any active army operations, a part of his training will happen in Jammu & Kashmir. His battalion has its headquarters in Bengaluru but is currently posted in Kashmir. According to reports, Dhoni will live like any other soldier in their quarters while undergoing intense training.
You look good in Transport allotted to you, MS Dhoni – Mahindra
The three-year-old clip shows MS Dhoni, an honorary Lieutenant Colonel, meeting army personnel. The video shows him travelling in a Mahindra XUV500, which earned Dhoni appreciation from the chairman of the Mahindra group.
“MS, you look good in those military fatigues. And you also look good in the transport allotted to you,” wrote Mahindra in his tweet addressed to Dhoni.

The wicketkeeper-batsman would now train with the Parachute Regiment. It is a part of which is expected to take place in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said. The Army, however, will not allow Dhoni, who holds an honorary post of Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army, to be part of any active operation, sources mentioned.
Recently, MS Dhoni had a decent World Cup 2019 campaign. He scored 273 runs in nine matches at an average of 45.50. And despite his run tally having two fifties, with both coming at a very slow strike rate, Dhoni’s intent was questioned by the fans and veterans of the game.
