The Windies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell is one of the few players, who will be remembered for his celebrations. His Army salute has already garnered enough craze in the youngsters and people would love to see him repeat such staff. Meanwhile, the Army love of MS Dhoni has made him shower praises on the ex-skipper of the Indian National Cricket Team.

Sheldon Cottrell of West Indies on Sunday shared an old video of MS Dhoni in Army uniform being felicitated by the President of India, with a heartfelt message of admiration for the India wicketkeeper. The video is from 2011 when Dhoni had been given the rank of an honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Army by the President.

“This man is an inspiration on the cricket field. But he is also a patriot. A man that gives to his country beyond duty. I have been at home in Jamaica with my boys these past weeks. And also, had time to reflect,” Cottrell wrote in his first post on Dhoni.”

Cottrell’s trademark salute-and-march celebration, which went viral during the recently concluded World Cup, is a tribute to his country’s armed forces. He had trained with the Jamaican Army for six months and had picked up his trademark move at that time.

“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,” he added as he shared a video of Dhoni.”

Dhoni is an honourary Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army. He is also a qualified paratrooper after having completed five parachute training jumps.

Dhoni, who opted out of the upcoming tour of the West Indies, will carry out patrolling and guard duties with troops during his 15-day stint with a Territorial Army battalion in the Kashmir Valley. He will be joining the 106 TA Battalion (Para) on July 31 and will continue until August 15.
