The Indian cricket team set off to a flying start at the start of the ICC cricket world cup 2019. During the opening match, against South Africa fans spotted a special symbol embroidered on the gloves of team India’s wicket-keeper, MS Dhoni.
The symbol has set the social media on fire, There were plenty of close-up shots of the same and it showed the regimental dagger insignia of the Indian Para Special Forces also known as ‘Balidaan’ symbolizing sacrifice. Fans were blown over by this gesture and applauded the former Indian captain for his love and support for the Indian army.
MS Dhoni, who holds an honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment in 2011, has also undergone training under the Para Brigade in 2015. India defeated South Africa, Dhoni also looked in fine touch in the match as he scored 34 runs but he was dismissed at the end of the match by Chris Morris. India will next face Australia in the World Cup on June 9.
