Reacting to the news by London’s Sky Sports which reported how Dhoni had himself unavailable for India’s tour of the West Indies to serve with his army regiment, Llyod posted two emojis signifying ‘tears of joy.’

His tweet left Indian fans incensed as they detected an attempt to mock Dhoni’s decision to prefer his army regiment over his full-time profession, cricket. Here’s how they reacted;

India recently announced its teams for three formats, T20I, One-Day Internationals and Tests, for the upcoming tour of West Indies. Rishab Pant had replaced Dhoni as the team’s main wicket-keeper for all three formats. Virat Kohli will be the captain while Rohit Sharma will act as his deputy.
