Mumbai: India limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni recently celebrated his 35th birthday on July 7 and the media went bonkers — stories circulated on his hairstyles, his best innings, his fishing skills to World Cup wins and, the signature helicopter shot.
Many tried to emulate ‘Captain Cool’ but a few succeeded; one needs enormous strength to pull off the helicopter shot. But a woman cricketer cleared the doubt.
Lauren Winfield effortlessly played the helicopter shot against Pakistan in the first T20I at Bristol on Tuesday.
The right-handed batsman scored 74 off 45 which included 10 fours and a six.
She executed the shot perfectly and snatched four runs. It came off Amin Anwar’s bowling.
The shot may not have had the same power as Dhoni but it looked pleasant to the eyes.
England women won the match by 68 runs in the end....
