Harbhajan Singh tried to emulate MS Dhoni's famous helicopter shot in viral video

[WATCH] Harbhajan Singh imitates MS Dhoni’s iconic 'helicopter shot' with golf club

Former India Test cricketer Harbhajan Singh on Tuesday showed his unique imitation of former India captain MS Dhoni's famous 'helicopter shot'. However, the retired off-spinner didn't use a cricket bat to play the shot, but a golf club.

Harbhajan tried his hand at the unique and powerful stroke while his trip to Dubai. He uploaded the video to Instagram and tagged Dhoni in the post with the caption:

“cricket helicopters shot and gold helicopter .. smooth ride.”

Afghanistan spin legend Rashid Khan dropped the helicopter and smiling-face with heart-eye emojis in appreciation of the shot.

The famous helicopter shot became a trademark of Dhoni and showed the strong bottom-hand play of the wicket-keeper batsman. It's also a shot that shows the influence of tennis ball cricket on the batting style of the World Cup-winning former India skipper.
