ILT20 2023: Rovman Powell sent a ball over the boundary like MS Dhoni’s ‘Helicopter Shot”

Powell was looking good to complete his century but got out on the last ball of the first inning. Despite this, he led his team to 220 runs before being replaced. He made 97 runs off just 41 balls, with 10 maximums and four boundaries. Especially, in the 20th over when the MI skipper Kieron Pollard came out to bowl. He smashed him to all parts of the ground and scored 20 runs in that over, including three sixes.

However, the shot of his inning came when he whipped an almost yorker ball for a six over the leg-side boundary. The shot reminds fans of the “Helicopter Shot,” played by the former Indian captain MS Dhoni. Everyone on the ground, including Pollard, was stunned to watch that shot.

Batting first, DC scored a massive 222/3 in their first inning. They also started well with the ball and picked up MI’s first three wickets for just 26 runs. But then, Pollard played a quick cameo. He scored 86 runs off just 38 balls, with six maximums and eight fours. Najibullah Zadran (30 off 9) and Samit Patel (18 off 6) also tried hard. But MI reached 206/5 in their chase and lost the game by 16 runs. Notably, it was MI’s first loss of the tournament.
