Rahul Tewatia has hit five sixes in Sheldon Cottrell’s over which reminds of Yuvraj’s 6 Sixes in 2007 T20 World cup against England.
Chasing a mammoth total of 224 for victory, RR won by 4 wickets with a blistering knock from Rahul Tewatia.
The main highlight of his innings was, thrashing Sheldon Cottrell’s bowling for five sixes in the 18th over.At first, when Tewatia hit four sixes in a row, everyone thought he ends up the over just like Yuvraj Singh did.However, he missed one as Sheldon cleverly bowled the delivery outside the off-stump.But he was not clever enough to get the next one right, Tewatia hit it into the stands grabbing 30 runs from his over.
Cricket fans are all-praise for this pinch hitter and compared him with Dhoni and Yuvraj’s innings.Thanking his miss out for a six, Yuvraj Singh tweeted “Mr @rahultewatia02 na bhai na (no man no) thanks for missing one ball! What a game congratulations to rr for a spectacular win!!! #RRvKXIP @mayankcricket great knock @IamSanjuSamson brilliant!”.
Even ICC is amazed at the match and praised the raining sixes of Tewatia saying “6666.6W6616 It rained sixes at Sharjah as Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer pulled off an unbelievable heist in the #IPL2020 Prior to that onslaught, Rajasthan Royals required 51 off 18 deliveries – they’ve won with three balls to spare Exploding head (sic).”.
