The 28-year-old Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter Rajat Patidar smashed a huge six off Punjab Kings (PBKS) left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar’s delivery that landed on an old fan’s head in the stands.
The 60th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) is being played between Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mayank Agarwal-led Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Friday, May 13.
The Madhya Pradesh batter Patidar has delivered amazing performances consistently for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League 2022. Also, he looked in great touch in the match against Punjab Kings.
Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar, who replaced Sandeep Sharma in the PBKS playing XI, came to bowl the 9th over of the match for his team.
After conceding 2 runs on the first two balls, he was smashed for a huge 102-meters six by Rajat Patidar on the 4th ball of the over as the Royal Challengers Bangalore batter took full advantage of the length delivery and hammered it over the long-on.
Notably, Patidar injured an old fan sitting in the stands with his marvellous looking six as the ball landed on his head. However, it looked like there was nothing much serious. Also, on the next delivery, Brar got smashed for four and he conceded 13 runs in the over.
