      Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni paid a surprise visit to a school in Srinagar on Wednesday as the Lt. Colonel in the Indian Army.

      Dhoni interacted with the students of Army public school during his surprise visit, at BB Cantonment in Srinagar.

      Chinar Corps of the Indian Army tweeted the pictures of surprise of Dhoni. "Lt Col (Hony) Mahendra Singh #Dhoni interacting with the enthusiastic children of #APS #Srinagar; emphasised the importance of #studies and #sports @adgpi @NorthernComd_IA @msdhoni," the tweet said.

      The Indian Territorial Army conferred the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel to Dhoni on 1 November 2011. He is the second Indian cricketer after Kapil Dev to have received this honour.

      Currently, Dhoni is enjoying off-time from cricketing duties as the Indian team is busy taking on Sri Lanka in a 3-match Test series.
