New Delhi: India’s ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is credited for having invented the ‘helicopter’ shot.
Known to give very less importance to technique, Mahi’s shot took cricket fans by surprise when he first showcased the shot soon after his entry into the national side.
When asked about the ‘helicopter’ shot, Dhoni said it was a technique he picked up while playing tennis ball cricket in his hometown of Ranchi.
On Wednesday, England discard Kevin Pietersen played another version of the shot during his 27-run knock for KwaZulu-Natal Dolphins in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge.
KP hit a six over fine leg, from a waist-high full toss from outside off stump.
