When it comes to playing the helicopter shots in cricket- nobody does it better than MS Dhoni. Few cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Kevin Pietersen in the past have tried to replicate the trademark MSD shot. Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner became the latest man to join the party.

In the 27th match of this IPL played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner replicated Dhoni’s trademark shot to good effect. The left-hander played it so well that opposition skipper Virat Kohli too applauded the Aussie’s effort.

It was the fifteenth over of the match and the bowler was Warner’s compatriot Kane Richardson.Richardson Full and outside off fetched it from there and whipped with power and panache over mid-wicket.


Warner was batting brilliantly in the match as he scored 92 off just 50 balls to help his team post a huge total of 194.In reply to SRH’s innings, RCB fell short of 15 runs. The win was Hyderabad’s fourth win in seven matches in the tournament.
