However, after the second ODI, which will be held at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on 13th December, a ceremonious tribute will be paid to Dhoni, who is set to retire after the game. Mind you, this is not former India skipper MS Dhoni we are talking about, whose cricket future has become a hot topic of discussion.
The character here referred is Dhoni, a sniffer dog who has been working with Mohali police for 10 years, who is set to retire following the second match of the India-Sri Lanka ODI series, as reported by The Indian Express. The Mohali police have been benefiting from Dhoni’s services ever since he was three-years-old, with the labrador assisting them in many security operations.
Two other dogs, John and Preeti will also retire along with Dhoni and are set to be given for adoption to people interested in looking after them.
When India clashed with Pakistan during the 2011 World Cup match at Mohali, Dhoni was highly instrumental in keeping tight security.
“Dhoni used to assist us in checking at PCA stadium during the international matches. During the world cup semifinal in 2011 between India and Pakistan, when the Prime Ministers of both the countries came to the city, Dhoni was working with us,” said Amrik Singh, the in-charge of the dog squad.
“He likes to sleep six to seven hours a day. He sleeps in the daytime. He is a specialist in sniffing explosives. He is the quickest of the dogs we have when it comes to do any search operations. We are going to miss him. He has been a great asset for us,” he added.
As, Indian team still has their horns locked with Sri Lanka in a three-match Test series. After that, these two teams will compete in a three-match ODI series which kickstarts on 10 December at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. Once the series will be over, both the teams will battle again for a 3 match T-20 series.
