"Thursday Thunderbolt...our very own Pari Sharma. Isn't she super talented?" tweeted Chopra.

Cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar too took note of Pari's cricketing skills.

"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," wrote Manjrekar.

Pari Sharma, a seven-year-old girl from Haryana's Rohtak district, aspires to represent the Indian women's cricket team.
