We are all aware of the bond that the present and former Indian captains share on the field. From giving suggestions to between the over advice we have all witnessed the Mahi-Kohli prep talks.
No doubt the cricket world misses Dhoni a lot after his retirement from the test and as he is going through a bad patch of his career fans miss his fiery innings that end with helicopter shots.
Yes, even someone who doesn’t follow the game of cricket is well aware of Dhoni’s helicopter shot. just a twist of the wrist and up goes the ball out of the park. That is his trademark shot.
Dhoni has mastered the shot like no other but it became a hit in 2011 at Wankhede stadium when in front of billions of crowd he lifted his bat for scoring the last winning runs to lift the World Cup. He then swung his bat in style and that became a signature.
After the first ODI win at Dambulla against Sri Lanka, the Indian team was seen at a net session ahead of the second game. No doubt Virat Kohli too admires his shot and is a fan of it. Kohli was displaying his skills with his willow while Dhoni came into the nets.
Kohli began rotating his arms over his head, probably a gesture to tell Dhoni to go all out in the practice session. That was indeed a sweet one from the Indian skipper. The video was posted by BCCI on social media.
