Just as we thought that Virat Kohli will end IPL 10 without any notable contributions, the Indian captain stormed back in the final encounter against Delhi Daredevils and scored a well-composed half-century which ensured Bangalore ended their disastrous campaign with a consolation victory. The most awaited moment in the match arrived when the stylish batsman played arguably the most glamorous shot in the tournament through the cover region.
Though it was arguably the best in the lot, but there were several other exceptional shots during the tournament which was executed brilliantly by the batsmen. The young generation batsmen have taken stroke making to a whole new level and some of the shots executed by them were not even thought of a few years back.
There were quite a few glamorous shots being executed throughout the group stage but some of them stood out and made it to the list of 5 most glamorous shots of the league stage. Let’s have a look at 5 best shots according to CricTracker.
Rahul Tripathi- Short arm Pull (Rising Pune Supergiant v Kolkata Knight Riders)
Tripathi has been the most consistent batsmen among the young bunch and has stood for RPS at the top of the order all through the tournament. He has piled on runs after runs and has got his team off to brilliant starts on quite a few occasions. His exceptional knock of 93 against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens handed RPS a sensational victory and helped them continue their resurgence in the tournament.
But his shot of the tournament came against the Sunrisers Hyderabad when the right-hander smoked a short of length delivery of Mohammed Siraj. It was the 5th over when Tripathi swivelled across his stumps and deposited Siraj for a monstrous six over the square leg region. He smashed a brilliant half-century and later it was the heroics from MS Dhoni which handed RPS a nerve-wracking victory in the final delivery of the match.
