U-19 World Cup: Musheer Khan’s Iconic Helicopter Shot better than MS Dhoni?

Musheer Khan’s Century and Helicopter Shot Lead India to Dominant Win in U19 World Cup

In a stunning display of talent, Musheer Khan’s remarkable century, his second in three innings, and impressive bowling figures of 2 for 10 guided India to a resounding 214-run victory over New Zealand in the Super Six stage of the 2024 U19 World Cup. Musheer’s flamboyant knock, featuring an iconic helicopter shot that mirrored the legendary MS Dhoni, earned him the leading run-scorer title in the tournament.

During the 46th over at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, Musheer unleashed the helicopter shot against right-arm fast bowler Mason Clarke’s slower delivery, sending the ball soaring over deep mid-wicket for a colossal six. This outstanding performance also marked Musheer as the second Indian batter to score multiple centuries in a single U19 World Cup edition, following in the footsteps of Shikhar Dhawan’s three centuries in 2004.

Musheer Khan’s dynamic display not only secured a significant win for India but also showcased his prowess as a rising cricket sensation in the U19 cricketing landscape.
