Watch: Rashid Khan plays unique ‘helicopter shot’
Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan had posted a video of himself playing a sensational shot which sent social media into a frenzy. In the video posted by Rashid Khan on Twitter, he can be seen attempting an inside out drive and then ending the shot with a twirl of the bat a bit similar to MS Dhoni’s pattern after playing his trademark helicopter shot.
“Do you call it a helicopter?? I think so,” Rashid’s caption read. Rashid’s video was also shared by Sunrisers Hyderabad and they captioned it: “Rashid Khan taking off on a Tuesday.”
The video went viral on all social media platforms with the majority of the netizens came up with their own opinion on whether Rashid Khan was able to execute helicopter shot or not. Although it didn’t look like the exact MS Dhoni’s helicopter shot, it appeared to be a reverse. Meanwhile, Rashid Khan’s teammate Hamid Hassan replied to his post and named his unique shot as “ninja cut”.
