David Lloyd Laughed At Dhoni For Joining Army Training, Got Heavily Slammed On Twitter

The Indian cricket squad is gearing up for the West Indies tour where they will be playing 2 test matches, 3 ODI and 3 T20Is but it will be the first time since 2004 that M S Dhoni won’t be part of the squad and will not play in any of the formats.

There is no denying the fact that Dhoni is one of the best cricketers that we have but it is also true that ageing is affecting his game and that is not good either for him or for the team. After India’s defeat in the semi-final against New Zealand in the World Cup 2019, it was speculated by many that this would be the last match of the former captain and he would be announcing his retirement soon.

There were some reports which stated that the selectors would not be picking Dhoni for future tours and even if he didn’t announce retirement, he would not play for India in the future. When everybody was curious to know whether Dhoni would be a part of the Indian squad for West Indies, the wicketkeeper-batsman told the board that he would not be available for selection for the next two months.

The reason for Dhoni’s unavailability is that he will be serving Para Regiment. If you remember, Dhoni is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Territorial Army, though it is an honorary post and permission for the same has been granted by Bipin Rawat, the Chief of the Indian Army.

While some people welcomed this decision of Dhoni, former England cricketer and coach David Lloyd found it funny and he reacted with laughing emojis on Twitter.

This didn’t go well with Twitter users and David Lloyd was heavily slammed by the fans of Dhoni. Here are some of the selected reactions:
