Dhoni's Whiplash Drive

That Mahendra Singh Dhoni honed his cricket on tennis balls is well known in Indian cricket circles. He uses his bottom hand and strikes the ball in a way that reporters have now termed "teeing off". Analogies to golf aside, Dhoni's bottom handed drives have turned into this highly unique whiplash drive that brings the bat in full circle in front of the batsman. It's been compared to Bheema wielding his gadaa and is quite a sight to watch.
