In a recent YouTube video uploaded by Cricket Australia, Glenn Maxwell is seen imitating the signature helicopter stroke of MS Dhoni

Maxi can also be seen impersonating the signature strokes some other legendary players such as Ricky Ponting (pull shot), AB de Villiers (lap or ramp shot), and Kevin Pietersen (switch hit/reverse sweep) in the video.

30-year-old Maxwell remembered a game wherein he had dropped the Indian legend Dhoni. The very next ball, MSD smashed the ball out of the park with his signature helicopter shot off a Faulkner delivery. Maxwell even recalls that the six was a whopping 115 meters. 

The Aussie player is brilliant in imitating the other aforementioned players as well. He replicated their batting stance and shots amazingly well. 

The video is sure to bring a smile to any fan of the beautiful game. Here is the video clip:

Cricket fans will hope Maxwell continues to make such videos of impersonations as they are downright hysterical. The Victoria-born all-rounder is also spot on in mimicking the players and has a blast while doing it. 

The Big Show is currently playing for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League and has chipped in with a few good knocks for them. Maxwell was a part of the playing XI when Australia played the T20Is in the series against India. He has also been named in the Australian ODI squad which will be brushing shoulders with India. 


Meanwhile, the Men in Blue will be high on confidence after the historic 2-1 Test series win in Australia. Indian fans will be eager to see their veteran Wicketkeeper-batsman Dhoni back in action in the ODIs against the Aussies. The first ODI of the series will be played at the SCG on January 12. 

Rohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, and Khaleel Ahmed are some of the other Indian players apart from MSD who departed for Australia to join the Indian squad for the ODIs on January 7.
