WATCH: Prithvi Shaw hits Dhoni-esque helicopter shot off Mitchell Johnson

Posted On / /

18-year-old Prithvi Shaw was the star in his own unique way despite Shreyas Iyer’s blitzkrieg of a captain’s knock that propelled Delhi Daredevils to the highest total in the IPL 2018 and an eventual 55-run victory against Kolkata Knight Riders.

The highlight of Shaw’s 62-runs innings was, of course, that helicopter shot which he hit in the penultimate delivery of the ninth over.

A length ball onto the stumps from Mitchell Johnson was elegantly flicked over mid-wicket, but what most onlookers found the wristy strike to be a probable attempt at imitating Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s famous Helicopter shot.

Here’s the video:
