Patidar celebrating after 100 vs LSG

Rajat Patidar put on a show at the Eden Gardens as he smoked LSG bowlers all around the park on his way to a brilliant 100. 

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. 

Twitter went into a frenzy after the innings. Here are some of the best reactions.
