Watch: Rashid Khan Plays Dhoni’s Helicopter Shot To Perfection, Crowd Go Ballistic

| 2 months ago

Apart from wicket-keeping and captaincy skills, MS Dhoni is widely-known for hitting big hits all over the ground. While the former captain has a lot of unorthodox shots in his kitty, his helicopter shot is certainly the best amongst them.  

MS playing a helicopter shot and launching the ball to the crowd is, undoubtedly, one of the best sights to experience on a cricket ground. And, now seeing another star from Afghanistan, Rashid Khan doing an eclipse with so much perfection gives you nothing but smiles. 

In the ongoing Mzansi Super League in South Africa, Rashid Khan playing for Durban hits a huge helicopter shot on his first delivery. The crowd applauded the hit as the ball sailed into the stands for a six.  The Durban Heats even after reducing for 139 for 7, while chasing 189, went on to win the match with a ball remaining, courtesy a swashbuckling Albie Morkel’s half-century. 

 

 

 

Perhaps, this is not the first time, Rashid did an MS Dhoni to perfection.  Playing for Maratha Arabians In the T-10 league clash against Pakhtoons, Rashid Khan emulates MS Dhoni’s helicopter shot as he smashed Irfan Khan for a six which went on the roof of the stadium. The team's dugout along with Irfan and spectators were left in awe as Afghanistan’s superstar looked in no mood to spare anyone on that day.
