Dhoni's delirious fan, who was holding the Indian tri-colour, breached the security and rushed towards the former Indian to touch his feet.

Running high on emotions, the trespasser was able to touch Dhoni's feet but in doing that, the Indian flag in his right hand brushed the ground. Just like his lightening quick stumping, Dhoni spotted that and grabbed the flag from the fan.

The incident took place during the innings which ended at 212. fought hard but lost the game by four runs and thus the series 1-2.

While Dhoni was exceptional behind the stumps as usual, he scored just two runs though. However, he has been in good touch of late.
