Old warhorse and retired Team India captain Dhoni is in news again. While the ongoing IPL has created a buzz around return of Dhoni, his fans have now made an unusual demand. Some Dhoni fans have now demanded that Dhoni be promoted to the rank of Army General to deal with China.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni currently holds the rank of Lt. Col in the Territorial army and plans to spend more time in the army after retirement. His fans, all members of a club called Dhoni Is Cricket King or in short, DICK have made this demand in their facebook group.
We asked the members of the group about the logic of this demand. Hardcore Dhoni fan Mithun Kumar posted”Dhoni is the best finisher we have. He will finish both Pakistan and China if he leads the Army. We all have seen that he is very cool on the field and has excellent leadership capabilities. Naturally, the army will benefit from his experience in IPL and international cricket.”
While the IPL promises to be interesting, it remains to be seen if Indian Army pays heeds to the demands of Dhoni’s DICK fans and gives him a prominent role in the organisation.
