Indian cricketer MS Dhoni, who was honoured with the rank of a Lieutenant Colonel in 2011, will join his battalion in Jammu and Kashmir on July 31. Sources added that he will carry out all his duties with the troops, which include patrolling, guarding and post duty. 

The wicket-keeper will be with the 106 Territorial Army battalion (Para) from July 31 to August 15. He will also stay with the troops in the interim. This means that he will be with the army on India's Independence Day.

Dhoni, who had opted out of India's tour to West Indies to serve the army, had expressed his feelings to the officials to serve his battalion, which is located in the Kashmir Valley. This unit is a part of the Victor Force. 

"As requested by the officer and approved by the Army headquarters, he will be taking on the duties of patrolling, guard and post duty and would be staying with troops," said a senior official.
