Hit ball, don’t see ball


The inimitable MS Dhoni doing something that is never ever seen on a cricket field! This from the India’s tour of New Zealand in 2009, 3rd ODI in Christchurch. The bowler is Grant Elliott.

From Cricinfo:

43.6

Elliott to Dhoni, SIX, Dhoni transports this around 30 rows into the stands over long-on, overpitched on middle and he just jabs it, went off the middle, some timing there

This doesn’t do justice to the “coolness” with which the shot was executed. (Skip to 0:23 if you want the slo-mo replay)
