There is no doubt about the fact that our MS Dhoni is one of the finest players cricket has seen. And yes, he may not exactly follow the rules when it comes to batting. But hey, we aren’t complaining!
For instance, the helicopter shot has become synonymous with Dhoni and it is his chosen mantra for sixes. And no one, we repeat, no one has been able to successfully imitate this trademark shot.
No one, until Rashid Khan came along.
Afghan prodigy Rashid Khan replicated Mahi’s trademark shot in the Mzansi Super League (MSL), and of course, this instantly caught the attention of fans worldwide.

You are playing it like now a pro player.
You are MSD Version 2.0.
Loved it and fallen in love with those shots.
Your big fan from India. @rashidkhan_19
I want you to play these shots against CSK when MSD is doing wicket keeping behind the stumps.
