Rajat Patidar played one of the greatest innings in the history of IPL as he made his way to a scintillating 100 in the all-important Eliminator vs LSG.
Patidar came out to bat early in the innings after Faf went back for a duck. He, along with Virat stabilised the ship. Rajat was batting aggressively from the get-go. He smashed 20 runs in the final over of the Powerplay to power RCB to 52 after 6 overs.
But, all hell broke loose when he smashed Ravi Bishnoi for 27 runs in the 16th over. He reached his century in just 49 balls and broke a plethora of records on the way.
He eventually finished with 112, and RCB finished with 207.
