MS Dhoni, the former skipper of team India, is one of the most loved cricketers and his fans are absolutely crazy for him.
In the third and final T20 against New Zealand when the hosts were batting, a fan of MSD breached security, came running on the ground towards Dhoni and touched his feet. The fan was also carrying an Indian flag and while he bent down to touch Dhoni’s feet, the flag touched the ground. As the Indian cricketer saw the flag touching the ground, he picked it up instantly.
As the video of the same goes viral, fans are going gaga over this patriotic gesture of Dhoni and showering praises on him on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
