Dhoni is the one who made it more popular, and has used it to effect more often; but most people are unaware that it was indeed the Sachin who is the rightful patent holder of the coveted shot. The helicopter shot is a 360 degree fast swing of the wrists that enables the hitter generate more power and inject more venom onto the shot. The shot that Sachin plays in the video is a perfect helicopter that was played in the 2002 Natwest Series against England in Durham.

It is at the end overs that Sachin pulls off a helicopter shot and India scored 15 runs in the last over that enabled the team to score over 260. The master is known for many of his signature shots like his unmatched straight drive, his square cut and also his upper cut.
