The Indian Premier League is already known for creating exciting moments in the game of cricket, both on and off the pitch. However, recently, during a Vivo Indian Premier League 2019 match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, another exciting moment emerged, this time it was a mix of automobiles and cricket! The Harrier, which was on the ground due to the partnership between Vivo IPL and Tata Motors, was struck by the ball hit for a six by the Kolkata Knight Riders player Chris Lynn. As one can see from the official video, the ball just bounces straight off the windshield, seemingly unharmed by the impact. The only thing that the ball does is trigger the alarm on the Tata Harrier SUV, which is arguably the most popular product by the homegrown company.

Furthermore, there's a competition involved as well, wherein a fan stands a chance to win a Harrier SUV.
