India lost the closely-fought T20 match against New Zealand last evening but almost everything that happened in the game was overshadowed by this one gesture by MS Dhoni. 

He prevented the Indian flag from falling. 

For context, a fan had run into the field to touch Dhoni’s feet, while holding the Indian flag in his hand. 

As he bowed down, the flag started nearing the ground.

Dhoni showed his quick reflexes then and took the flag from his hand, making his countrymen very proud of him.

Not many know that Dhoni doesn’t put the Indian flag on his helmet because he has to put it down several times as a wicketkeeper. 

It all makes sense now. There is none like Dhoni.
