MS Dhoni's Patriotic Gestures During India vs. New Zealand 3rd T20I Sends Twitter to a Frenzy

MS Dhoni has repeatedly shown lots of class on and off the track and Saturday the former Indian captain again showed it. During India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I ran a fan with the Indian flag of security in Hamilton, ran to Dhoni and touched his feet. The 37-year-old saw the Indian flag touching the ground and quickly took it away from the fan and gave it to a security staff. Dhoni's brilliant gesture became viral on Twitter and sent fans to a frenzy.

A fan tweeted a video of the incredible moment.

Other fans welcomed Dhoni for his actions.

At the fighting front, there was a heartbeat for Indian fans, as the team was terribly short of hunting when hosts New Zealand managed the three-match T20I series 2-1.

Set in bats, Colin Munro stitched together an 80-runner tripod with Tim Seifert for the first wicket to give the hosts a flying start. The left-handed opener ended up smashing 72 out of 40 balls, including five seconds to drive Black Caps for an impressive sum of 212 for four.

Vijay Shankar top-scored for India with a 28-ball 43 for India in pursuit, but the inability of the Indian batsmen to make their start count came back to bite them in the end.

Rohit Sharma (38 out of 32) Rishabh Pant (28 out of 12), Hardik Pandya (21 out of 11) all got started, but failed to make it count.

A late attack by Dinesh Karthik (33 not out) and Krunal Pandya (26) took India extremely close, but New Zealand held the nerves to fight a four-run victory to claim the series.
