IPL 2024: [WATCH] Rajat Patidar Smashes Hardik Pandya For A Massive Six

In the IPL 2024 season’s 25th match, Rajat Patidar of the Royal Challengers Bangalore showcased a sizzling half-century against the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.

Although Rajat Patidar hasn’t been able to ignite IPL 2024 with his batting, he caught Virat Kohli’s attention by smashing a massive six in the ongoing match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

In the tenth over of the RCB innings, facing MI skipper Hardik Pandya, Patidar took the strike after two dot deliveries to Faf du Plessis. Kohli then rotated the strike with a single, giving Patidar the opportunity to showcase his batting prowess.

On the fourth delivery of the over, the RCB batsman scored two runs before smashing Hardik Pandya’s fourth delivery for a massive six. Pandya pitched one just outside off stump at a good length, and Rajat Patidar swung forcefully at it.

He made solid contact, sending the ball soaring over the second tier in the long-on stands. As soon as he struck the six, the cameras captured Virat Kohli, who appeared highly impressed with the shot.
