Trust AB de Villiers to come up with a new shot every time he holds the bat. This time, it was a one-handed no-look six that caught the maximum eyeballs and went through the roof. Literally.

"Mr 360" was at his big-hitting best when he came out to bat against Kings XI Punjab at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday, helping Royal Challengers Bangalore to clinch their third successive victory with 17 runs and keep themselves alive in the tournament.

De Villiers (82* off 44) and Marcus Stoinis (46* off 34) added 121 runs for the fifth wicket to power Bangalore to 202 for 4 in 20 overs. Despite the surface being a belter and Punjab's top-five batsmen getting solid starts, the target looked far-distant and the visitors could only manage to put 185/7 on the board.

With this victory, RCB climbed one spot up and pushed Steve Smith's Rajasthan Royals to the bottom on the points table.

But the highlight of the match, a scene now considered "beyond science," was a six that came off De Villiers' bat.

The incident came in the 19th over when Mohammed Shami bowled a chest-high beemer to AB. Looking to protect himself, the RCB batter ducked and looked away, yet swinging his bat and managing to find a connection.

The rest, as they say, is history.

The white ball, shot from a cannon, flew 95-metres away and landed on Chinnaswamy's rooftop.

Fans, commentators, and Shami were left scratching their heads after the freak show.

The video of the outrageous six was later uploaded by IPL here: www.iplt20.com.
