When Dhoni ensured Indian flag didn’t touch the ground

TIL Desk Sports/ In a moving gesture, Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday showed how dear the Indian flag is to him after one of his countless fans trespassed on to the ground during the third T20 International against New Zealand in Hamilton.  

Dhoni’s delirious fan, who was holding the tri-colour, breached the security and rushed towards the former Indian captain to touch his feet. Running high on emotions, the trespasser was able to touch Dhoni’s feet but in doing that, the Indian flag in his right hand brushed the ground.

 Just like his lightening quick stumping, Dhoni spotted that and grabbed the flag from the fan. The incident took place during the New Zealand innings which ended at 212. India fought hard but lost the game by four runs and thus the series 1-2.
