Former Australia captain Steve Smith aced the helicopter shot which was invented by MS Dhoni, in a local T20 match in Australia.

Smith did a Dhoni and scored a breezy 40 off 21 balls in the NSW T20 Premier Cricket tournament match.

Even though Smith and Warner are serving a 12-month ban after they were caught advising Cameron Bancroft to use a sandpaper to tamper the ball during a Test against South Africa, the two suspended cricketers recently took part in the Canada Global T20 League.

Meanwhile, India will play three T20Is, three ODIs and four Test matches against the Aussies, starting on November 21, ahead of the 2019 World Cup in England.

Australia will be without Smith and Warner for the series against India.
