MS Dhoni has surely won hearts with his on-field performances over the years. But also his off the field gestures have bagged him a plethora of fans. The former skipper of India undeniably has a huge fan following across the globe. Now, India might have lost the T20I series against New Zealand by four runs at Seddon Park in Hamilton, but Dhoni’s patriotic gesture impressed the netizens.  So here’s what happened. MS Dhoni’s Brilliant Stumping Sends Tim Seifert Packing During IND vs NZ, 3rd T20I 2019 (Watch Video).

A fan breached the security and ran on the pitch to touch the MS Dhoni’s feet. The fan had a flag in his hand and he bent towards. Little did the fan realise that the flag would touch the ground. The 37-year- old saw that the Tricolour did not touch the ground and immediately took it away from his hand. The video of the incident went viral and was shared on social media. Check it out below.

Talking about the match, India was chasing an improbable total of 212 runs. The visitors won the toss and elected to field first. The Kiwi batsmen bamboozled the Indian bowlers by hitting them all over the park. Krunal and Hardik Pandya jointly gave away 98 runs from 48 deliveries. The series ended with Kiwis winning the game 2-1.
