The third T20I between India and New Zealand at Hamilton witnessed three incidents of invaders entering the ground to greet MS Dhoni.
Former India skipper Dhoni once again proved his love for the nation. This was after a fan invaded the pitch to meet the 37-year-old during the third and final T20I against New Zealand.
Firstly Dhoni Gives Respect to the National Flag..??

The intruder ran towards Dhoni to touch his feet but with an Indian flag in his hands. Just as he came close to Dhoni, he bent down to touch his feet while inadvertently brushing the flag on the ground. On realising this, Dhoni quickly grabbed the tri-colour from the supporter.
The incident took place during the New Zealand innings, who after being invited to bat posted 212 runs on the board. In response, India got off to a poor start but the Men In Blue made sure that they remain in the contest until the final over.
India eventually lost the match by four runs, but the efforts by the Indian squad earned an applause from everyone.
