India wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni will be handed over duties like patrolling, guard and post duty in Kashmir. In a statement, the Indian Army said,”Lieutenant Colonel (Honorary) MS Dhoni is proceeding to 106 TA Battalion (Para) for being with the Battalion from 31 Jul-15 Aug 19.”

The right-hander had earlier ruled himself out of the West Indies tour.

Dhoni became a qualified paratrooper after having completed five parachute training jumps in the Agra training camp in 2015.
