‘Voh laut aaya he!’ – Fans recall MS Dhoni as Virat Kohli smashes an amazing helicopter shot in 3rd ODI against SL


Former Indian skipper and veteran batter Virat Kohli completed his 46th ODI century during the third and last of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. The 34-year-old played a sensational knock of 166 runs off 110 balls with 13 boundaries and eight maximums to his name. Notably, it was also the 21st ODI century at home soil for the Delhi batter and he has now surpassed the former legendary Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar in terms of highest ODI centuries on Indian soil.

Apart from his other amazing shots in the entire innings, the one that attracted the eyeballs of the Indian cricket fans was a six on the helicopter shot. ­­Kohli smashed this six on the fourth ball of the 44th over off Kasun Rajitha. The latter tried to deliver a slower one outside the off stump but Kohli powered it over the long-on region.

This shot from Kohli gave a glimpse of former legendary Indian wicketkeeper-batter and skipper MS Dhoni. The fans immediately took to Twitter and recalled the two-time world cup winner skipper Dhoni.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Virat Kohli ended up the series being the highest run-scorer and won the ‘player of the series award for his brilliant batting performances throughout the entire series. The right-hander scored 283 runs in three innings of the three ODIs in the series against the Islanders. He registered two centuries to his name with an outstanding average of 141.50.

Apart from that, he was also adjudged ‘player of the match for his match-defining knock in the last ODI of the series at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.

Now, the veteran of 46 ODI centuries will be in action during the upcoming ODI series against New Zealand. Both teams will play the first of the three-match ODI series at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.
