The youngster has been one of the most consistent performers in the tournament and has provided Rising Pune Supergiant with sensational starts on quite a few occasions. He has outshone Ajinkya Rahane and his captain Steve Smith in the run scoring department and on this very day, he made light work of the KKR bowlers as he stormed his way to a 52 balls 93 as RPS chased down KKR’s target quite comfortably in the end.

It was stroke making at its very best as the young gun literally toyed with the KKR bowlers. He smashed left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav for 4 sixes and also treated Umesh Yadav with disdain. His extra cover drive was arguably the shot of the day and his innings contained 9 fours and 7 hits over the fence. Courtesy his innings RPS romped home by 4 wickets and with 4 deliveries to spare.
