Musheer Khan’s Spectacular Helicopter Shot Creates, Drawing Parallels to MS Dhoni


In a remarkable display of skill, Musheer Khan delivered a stellar performance, securing his second century in the U-19 World Cup, propelling India to a significant victory over New Zealand. This outstanding feat comes just a day after his brother, Sarfaraz Khan, received the Test call-up for the Indian cricket team. Musheer now joins the ranks as the second Indian batter ever to achieve the milestone of scoring more than one century in the U-19 World Cup.

During his impressive innings of 131, one particular shot stood out – a helicopter shot off the bowling of Mason Clarke that sailed over deep mid-wicket for a massive six. The video of this extraordinary shot swiftly went viral on social media, prompting users to draw comparisons with the iconic helicopter shot associated with former India skipper MS Dhoni.

India’s commanding display, fueled by Musheer’s stellar 131 and Adarsh Singh’s solid 52, resulted in a formidable total of 295/8. In a spectacular bowling performance, left-arm spinner Saumy Kumar Pandey claimed 4 wickets for 19 runs, while pacer Raj Limbani contributed with 2 wickets for 17 runs, dismantling New Zealand’s top order and restricting them to a mere 81 runs in 28.1 overs.

Raj Limbani’s impactful performance unfolded right from the start as he secured crucial breakthroughs on the first and fifth deliveries of New Zealand’s innings. This early success not only set the tone for India but also underscored Limbani’s economic and effective opening spell, boasting figures of 5-0-12-2.

India’s vice-captain, Pandey, delivered a stellar bowling performance, finishing with outstanding figures of 10-2-19-4. His impactful spell effectively dismantled the Black Caps’ chase, significantly impacting their pursuit of the target.
