Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Rahul Tewatia stole the show after he slammed 5 sixes in an over to stage a brilliant comeback in the Indian Premier League IPL 2020. Royals made the highest successful run-chase in IPL history after chasing down 223 runs with three balls to spare.
The young all-rounder was the talking point of the game. Tewatia played a sensational 53 runs knock and paved the way for Rajasthan Royals, slamming 5 sixes in one over off Shelden Cottrell in the 18th over of the match. And the over changed the game for the Rajasthan team as they managed to complete the historic run-chase.
Yuvraj Singh’s hilarious response
Indian legendary batsman Yuvraj Singh was relieved after watching Tewatia coming close to his 6-sixes-in-an-over record. On a lighter note, Yuvraj thanked him for missing one ball of the over.
Yuvraj wrote on Twitter,” Mr @rahultewatia02 na bhai na Smiling face with open mouth and cold sweat thanks for missing one ball ! What a game congratulations to rr for a spectacular win !!! #RRvKXIP @mayankcricket great knock @IamSanjuSamson brilliant !”
Tewatia started off slowly scoring 17 runs in 23 balls before the 18th over. But after Cottrell’s 30-run over changed the game for RR and Tewatia ended his innings with 53 runs off 31 balls studded with 7 sixes.
