Rahul Tewatia’s Heroic Comeback - One of the biggest finds of the season, all-rounder Rahul Tewatia made the world take notice as he smashed fives sixes in an over and helped Rajasthan Royals (RR) complete the highest chase in IPL history. The 27-year-old uncapped cricketer scored 255 runs in 11 innings, and finished the league stage as RR’s second-highest wicket-taker with 10 scalps.
KL Rahul’s Magnificent 132* - He was leading a franchise for the first time ever, and KL Rahul led from the front, finishing the league stage as the highest run-getter with 670 runs in 14 games. He notched five half-centuries, and a hundred that will go down as one of the best knocks in the history of the tournament. Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) captain Rahul smashed a blistering 69-ball 132* – the highest individual score by an Indian player in the IPL – against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Varun Chakravarthy’s Five-Wicket Haul - Another uncapped name who impressed this season was Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy. Among all his performances, the 29-year-old Karnataka-born cricketer’s most entertaining spell was the one where he picked up a five-wicket haul, finished with figures of 5/20 and helped his team bag a 59-run win over Delhi Capitals (DC).
Virat Kohli’s Quickfire 90* Against CSK - There are entertainers and then there’s Virat Kohli – a cricketer who is a class apart. This IPL season, the RCB captain has scored 460 runs in 14 innings so far which includes an unbeaten 52-ball 90* against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The captain’s knock comprised four sixes and four boundaries, and helped his team post a total of 169/4 after being reduced to 93/4.
Anrich Norje’s Fastest IPL Delivery - Delhi Capitals (DC) pacer Anrich Nortje shattered an eight-year-old record of Dale Steyns’ by bowling the fastest delivery of the IPL. The delivery was timed 156/2 kmph, and bowled in their match against RR at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
