Dhoni withdraws Bell appeal (2011)

Despite being in a losing position during a Test match in Nottingham, England, Indian cricket team captain M.S. Dhoni withdrew his appeal to dismiss host nation batsman Ian Bell for a run out; the latter had mistakenly walked off the ground while the ball was still in play, right before the tea break. The wicket would have helped India get back in the game, but the Indians chose fair play over victory – a gesture applauded by the English and the fans.
