Guwahati: 29th July, 2019
World Cup-winning former Indian Captain MS Dhoni has begun his two-month training with Indian Army’s Parachute Regiment. On Wednesday, Dhoni joined a battalion, which has its headquarters in Bengaluru.
The 38-year-old holds the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army unit of the Parachute Regiment (106 Para TA battalion).
The honour was accorded to him by the Indian Army in 2011. Dhoni was given this honour along with Abhinav Bindra and Deepak Rao.
In 2015, the Ranchi lad became a qualified paratrooper after having completed five parachute training jumps from Indian Army aircrafts in the Agra training camp.
