We continue to be awed by our T20 cricket season, and fans are simply delighted that cricket is back . Every sport was affected by the pandemic, and the die-hard fans missed watching their favorite sports. It doesn’t seem to be the case anymore; fans seem to be getting their money’s worth. Rashid Khan recently did something that reminded some cricket fans of a legend by the name of MS Dhoni.
Not for the first time, fans were reminded of the former Indian captain. He has been brilliant in the game. His contributions have immortalized cricket. His World Cup victories and “helicopter shots,” as well as his electrifying wicketkeeping, will be remembered. He was also deemed the best finisher in the game of cricket at one point.
The helicopter shot reminded cricket fans of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni and CSK
Rashid Khan scored a brilliant knock during the T20 Blast/Vitality Blast quarter-final. He won the Man Of The Match award with his bat. He scored 29* off nine balls to help his team win. Once again, he proved himself to be a capable allrounder. The fans were left in a nostalgic mood after watching one of his shots.
As Afghanistan’s cricketer hit a six, the ball cleared the fence. The use of the helicopter shot made famous by CSK skipper MS Dhoni was brilliant. The former Indian captain and wicketkeeper-batsman retired from international cricket last year. Fans still love him to date and follow his every move.
Here is Rashid Khan’s viral video of his brilliant shot:
The second phase of the IPL is just around the corner. Next is the T20 World Cup. The Afghan team will be focusing on performing well and making a name for itself in the game of cricket due to their participation in the international tournament after the political crisis.
Rashid Khan is a pillar of their strong side. As an all-rounder, he is clearly capable of making a significant contribution to his team.
A player can change the game at any time, not just with the ball but also with the bat. In recent years, he has become more proficient at this.
When he returns to the UAE for the phase-2 of the IPL, it could also be a deciding factor. Sunrisers Hyderabad will therefore rely on his contributions to win games. For them to qualify for this season’s playoffs, they will need to win some crucial matches. For now, however, all cricket fans will just miss a legend of the sport: MS Dhoni. Congratulations to Rashid Khan! What a knock!
