After a loss in Cricket World Cup 20118, the 38-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman has taken a two-month break from active cricket to serve his army unit in the Kashmir Valley.
As part of Independence Day celebrations in the state, the Union government has undertaken a program to unfurl the tri-color in each and every village of Jammu & Kashmir.
