Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra shared the small clip of Pari Sharma playing MS Dhoni’s trademark shot besides adding commentary in the 18-second video.
Former Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar also took note of her cricketing talent
I see now helicopter shot being actually practiced. Along with collecting the ball very close to the stumps as keeper, this is another cricketing technique Dhoni has popularised as great options for budding cricketers.
