Mahindra Singh Dhoni always wins our hearts, be it on or off the field. A through gentleman and a cool-headed cricketer, Mahi once again proved that he is a true patriot at heart and his love for our nation is beyond everything.

In a surprise turn of events for the security guarding the field at the third one day international match against New Zealand in Hamilton on Sunday, an enthusiastic fan with Indian flag in his hand ran towards Dhoni in the field to seek his blessings.

The breach of security left commentators and cricketers on the field stunned but the fan continued running towards Dhoni and bent down to touch his feet. Even while trying to stop the fan, Dhoni observed Indian flag accidentally touching the ground.

The sharp minded former skipper quickly grabbed Indian flag from the hands of the invader and walked away. It may sound simple, but for millions of Indians, saving Indian flag from falling on to the ground means a lot.

This noble gesture won millions of Indian hearts and trended quickly on twitter and other social media platforms. Twitterati heaped praises on Dhoni, even as their hearts swelled with pride.

One of his fans from the twitter handle 10 Bamboos wrote, He picked up the flag first. Huge, huge Mr Dhoni @msdhoni.

While other fan @Akshay Vandure1 wrote, Firstly Dhoni Gives Respect to the National Flag.

Tiranga Hamari Jaan Hai, Dhoni Hamara Shaan Hai.

Meanwhile, Mahindra Singh Dhoni also achieved another important milestone in his career to become the first Indian cricketer to play 300 T20 matches, joining other illustrious cricketers like Chris Gale, Dwayne Bravo, Kieran Pollard.
