Mahendra Singh Dhoni is hands-down of the coolest cricketer in the history of Cricket. Dhoni has a huge fan following who is crazy for him for his calm nature and brilliance on-ground.

Although, these days Dhoni has been pretty inconsistent but his overall contribution to cricket makes him a great player. He was the most successful captain for Indian cricket team till now. With his dedication and extremely amazing skills he has taken the team forward to reach new heights.

Dhoni is not just loved for the great cricketer he is but is also respected a lot for the great human being he is.

But if you are a fan of cricket you might have observed that unlike many cricketers in the Indian cricket team, Dhoni doesn’t carry tricolor or tiranga on his helmet.

The trend of wearing a Tricolor on helmet was started by Sachin Tendulkar and now everyone in the Indian cricket team has it on their helmet, from Shikhar Dhawan to Virat Kohli to Rohit Sharma to Suresh Raina, every Indian cricketer excluding MS Dhoni.

Well, there’s a reason behind it. The reason will make you respect our Captain cool even more. You will love him even more.

The Question was answered by Quora user named Chandan Narayan .He answered this question very wonderfully, have a look :

For the respect of the Flag.

MS is a wicket keeper who very often needs to change from wearing a simple hat to a hard helmet. He cannot always call someone from the dug out to supply him these things every now and then. That’s to save time and also just because a player is not there in the team’s playing XI does not mean he will carry hats and helmets all the time.

So a wicket keeper very often has to keep the helmet someplace back in the distance when he does not wear it.

A National flag is a symbol of great honor and respect, so it can’t be placed on ground as the law states. That’s a true conduct, you can Google it. Hence either you don’t put the helmet with Flag on ground or don’t put the Flag on the helmet at all.

Dhoni is also an army officer, so he must abide by this even more religiously. Cricketers, or public figures like this are Great examples to be followed by a nation. So he is just setting a good example for everyone to follow as well.

An Instagram user with the username ‘stumpmic’ also wrote a similar post disclosing the reason behind Dhoni not wearing Tiranga on his helmet:

Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not spotted featuring the Indian flag on his helmet while keeping of late. While he has had the flag on his helmet in the past, he doesn't prefer having the tri-colors on his helmet now. This appears to be a conscious effort from the gloveman. The national flag is a symbol of respect and pride for any person. According to a Quora user, the law states that any equipment with the national flag cannot be placed on the ground. But a wicket-keeper needs to put his helmet on the ground while keeping to fast bowlers. It is tough to hand it over to the 12th man in between overs as it wastes time and the umpires wouldn't allow it. Hence, the finisher decided not to have the flag on his helmet which is a great gesture. . . .
