MI vs RR: Watch - Tilak Varma's Six Hits Cameraman's Head

Mumbai Indians (MI) batter Tilak Varma all but guaranteed his place in the side courtesy of a brilliant knock in the run chase against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Saturday.

He scored 61 off just 33 balls, which included five mammoth sixes and three fours. None of the bowlers were spared as the 19-year-old showcased all his shots in what was turning out to be a tough chase for the 5-time champions.

During the knock, one of Varma’s sixes landed right on the head of the cameraman, who was unaware and was capturing the shot through his lens. He dropped down to the ground with the fielder at long-off, Trent Boult, asking for immediate help.

Fortunately, the cameraman stood up and gave a thumbs up to Boult, who continued to look concerned.

Earlier in the day, Jos Buttler smashed his second century and the first of IPL 2022. He took on the bowlers and scored more than half of his team’s runs. Around the fifteen-over mark, he had already faced 60 balls and was just four runs short of his century.

Buttler took a particular liking to Basil Thampi, whom he smashed for 26 runs in a single over. MI captain Rohit Sharma ended up bowling Kieron Pollard to make up for the damage caused due to Buttler’s rampage.
