However, on Wednesday, in the T10 League clash against Pakhtoons for Maratha Arabians, the leg-spinner took his finishing abilities up a notch.
Against the tall Mohammad Irfan, Rashid decided to emulate one of the greatest finishers of all time MS Dhoni, unleashing a ‘Helicopter Shot’ for six! The ball, like the former Indian captain’s has done several times, went on to hit the roof of the Sharjah stadium.
The youngster shared a clip of that moment via his official Twitter account.
Reacting to the clip, another youngster on the map and fellow leg-spinner, Sandeep Lamichhane let his thoughts on the shot known very clearly.
Wah Bhai wah 🙏 Marvelous 💪— Sandeep Lamichhane (@IamSandeep25) November 29, 2018
Unfortunately for Rashid, his side was on the losing end of the clash as Pakhtoons chased down the 126-run target with four balls to spare.
