Please enjoy as I did” (sic).  The excitement of Jamaican soldier did not stop as he also described his inspiration on Dhoni’s patriotism.

Further, Cotterell added “This man is an inspiration on the cricket field. But he is also a patriot and a man that gives to his country beyond duty. I have been at home in Jamaica with my boys these past weeks and had time to reflect (1/2)” (sic). In 2015, MSD completed 5 parachute training jumps from the Indian aircraft in the training camp at Agra before becoming the qualified paratrooper.
