A few days ago, Dhoni, in the surfaced video, was seen playing volleyball with the members of his regiment.
Dhoni, who recently featured in the Cricket World Cup, holds an honorary post in parachute regime of the territorial army. He made himself unavailable for the West Indies tour in order to serve for his country. The 38-year-old, however, had made commitments even before the World Cup.
In Dhoni’s absence, Rishabh Pant was given a nod for the ODI’s and T20, while Wriddhiman Saha is likely to feature in the Tests against West Indies.
Dhoni is expected to return for India’s T20 series against South Africa on home soil.
The Men in Blue are scheduled to play three T20Is and three Test matches against South Africa starting September 15.
