Fans replies for the Virat’s Helicopter shot
Around the 27 second mark of the video, a jolly Kohli could be seen shadow-practicing one of the most iconic shots in the history of Indian cricket – the famous ‘Helicopter Shot’ which was obviously popularised by the former captain of the team and recently retired international cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
