MS Dhoni has received several salutes as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Territorial Army. But he recently got one from a Golden Retriever at the Maharashtra Cricket Association’s International Stadium in Pune, and Tweeple are loving it.
The video was shot soon after Sunday's match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which MS Dhoni’s side won by a comfortable eight-wicket margin. First posted on the Twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings, it has now gone viral on the Internet.
The caption of the video reads, "Say bye to your Monday blues with loads of cuteness and a royal salute! #whistlepodu #Thala @msdhoni #yellove".
Tweeple obviously loved this and were over the moon.
Dhoni’s love for dogs isn’t new. Some time ago, the CSK captain strolled into the dressing room with a Golden Retriever.
CSK have currently made it to the play-offs in the Indian Premier League 2018. They’ve reached this stage of the tournament every time they participated in it since 2008. They next face Delhi Daredevils on Friday.
