One of the most iconic shots in modern-day cricket is played by former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. The “helicopter shot”, as it is called, is a bottom handed flick to a full-length delivery over mid-wicket, and it has been made famous by Dhoni.
Over the years, there have been many batsmen who have tried to play the stroke and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has once again tried to copy the Indian wicket-keeper batsman.
Maxwell, who has made quite a name for himself when it comes to mimicking styles of cricketers, bore an uncanny resemblance to Dhoni while playing the stroke.
While imitating the shot, Maxwell also recalled the incident when he dropped Dhoni before the big-hitter smashed James Faulkner for a six.
