The leggie recently shared a video on Instagram, where he can be seen practicing the 'Helicopter Shot' at his home. However, while executing, he was a bit late and the ball took his outside to fly over his house's wall.
Sharing the video, Rashid captioned, "When helicopter go on wrong side and you have only 1 ball and go to neighbours." The video was so funny that it attracted around 90,000 likes in just 16 hours. His SRH teammate Wriddhiman Saha was the first one to comment on that and Saha wrote: 'Haha'.

Moreover, Erin Hollard, the wife of Australian cricketer Ben Cutting and also a TV anchor, took a dig at her husband in the comments. She wrote: "At least you're practicing! @cuttsy_31 swears to me he has no idea how to do one because 'it just happens'.
Rashid Khan took no time to reply, "To be honest it doesn't get better with practice. It's something happens with time."
The 22-year-old's next assignment is the upcoming Indian Premier League 2021 and he is expected to play a huge role in the tournament. Rashid will join the SRH camp sooner.
