During the match between RCB and PBKS,, the RCB batsman Rajat Patidar smashed a 102-meter six off Harpreet Brar’s bowling. But, unfortunately the ball hit an old spectator in the stands and injured him in the process.

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings both were playing this match to get two vital points to get into the playoffs. With the race to the playoffs heating up, both sides needed the points desperately.

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss, and chose to bowl first. The Punjab King’s batsmans played very destructively and dismantled the RCB’s bowling attack.
Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow scored remarkable fifties as PBKS posted 209/9 in 20 overs.

Chasing the total, RCB lost Virat Kohli very early and then Rajat Patidar joined Faf du Plessis in the middle. With a huge total to chase, Patidar could not take much time to settle in so he attacked the bowlers straight away.

After losing Faf’s wicket, Rajat Patidar alongside Glenn Maxwell kept the Reds in the hunt with a 64 runs partnership off 37 deliveries.

During his innings, Patidar injured a spectator in the stands with a massive six. Harpreet Brar was bowling the 9th over of RCB’s innings. On the 4th delivery, Rajat Patidar smashed him over the long-on for a 102-meter maximum. However, the ball hit the head of an old spectator in the stands to injure him.

Patidar played a cameo of 26 runs off 21 deliveries, including two maximums before getting out but it wasn’t enough on the night. His team could only manage 155/9 in 20 overs and RCB lost the game by 54 runs.
