Here is how fans hailed him:
Tewatia was the star at Sharjah against Kings XI Punjab, where he helped the Royals gun down a record chase. He hit Sheldon Cottrell for five sixes in one over after getting off to a slow start. The all-rounder is slowly but surely making his presence felt at the big stage. He has surely been the player to watch out for.
Thanks to Tewatitia late flourish, the Royals posted 154 for six in 20 overs.
