IPL 2019: It has to be among the most bizarre sixes hit in cricket! AB De Villiers did it and send the ball out of the ground, literally. It was not called a no-ball and de Villiers was surprised by the height of the ball, as he took his eyes off the ball, but managed to heave it over long leg. In all probability, the ball slipped out of Shami’s hand and it was not intentional. It was the third consecutive six of Shami in the 19th over of the match. De Villiers’ breathtaking 44-ball 82 powered RCB to a solid 202 runs.
Here is the video of the bizarre shot by ABD:
“We won four out of the last five we have played, it could have been five out of five,” RCB skipper Virat Kohli said after the match.
Meanwhile, Navdeep Saini’s fabulous penultimate over kept Royal Challengers Bangalore afloat as they beat Kings XI Punjab by 17 runs in an Indian Premier League encounter here Wednesday.
“We are just looking to enjoy our cricket. Tonight was another example of having fun. The partnership of ABD and Stoinis changed the match for us. At one stage we thought 175 were good but AB and Marcus got us past 200. The way they played was the deciding factor,” Kohli added.
