The match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab produced one of the most dramatic finishes in Indian Premier League history, as Rahul Tewatia slammed five sixes in the 18th over of the game to steer the RR to a stunning victory.
Needing 51 runs in 18 deliveries, Tewatia slammed 30 runs in Sheldon Cottrell's over to turn the tide, eventually aiding RR to a four-wicket win.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly reacted to the thrilling finish in the game, calling IPL the "best league in the world."
Taking to Twitter, the former Indian captain wrote, "What a game ..that’s why this is the best league in the world ... amazing talent on display @bcci @IPL."
Tewatia was on 17 off 23 balls by the end of the 17th over and very close to being labelled the villain of what could have a thrilling run chase. By the end of the next over, however, he had turned his innings into a fairy-tale.
Tewatia, a leg-spinner, slammed seven sixes in his innings and no fours. It is the joint most sixes anyone has hit without a four. He scored just 17 runs off his first 23 balls and then smashed 36 in his next eight.
