IPL 2021: Riyan Parag Brings Out MS Dhoni’s Signature ‘Helicopter shot’ Against RCB | WATCH

Rajasthan Royals’ Riyan Parag on Friday played some beautiful shots during his 16-ball 25 cameo against Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). However, what has got the netizens really interested is the MS Dhoni-esque helicopter shot which the Assam lad produced off the second ball of the 14th over, when the shuffled across at his crease and smashed a full-length delivery, bowled by Harshal Patel for a boundary through the mid-wicket region.

The only difference between Parag and Dhoni’s shot was that while the Chennai Super Kings skipper prefers the aerial route, the RR cricketer moved horizontally to collect valuable four runs for his side. However, after getting smashed for a four, Patel bounced back and dismissed Parag on his next ball.

Padikkal’s unbeaten 101-run knock off 52 balls was laced with 11 fours and six sixes. RCB skipper Virat Kohli also made a valuable contribution with the bat, scoring72 runs off 42 balls.
