WATCH : Rishabh Pant smashes audacious six off Mohit Sharma’s deceptive slower ball


Gujarat Titans faced a tough challenge on the field after their captain, Shubman Gill, chose to bowl first. During the powerplay, the home team managed to dismiss three of Delhi’s top-order batsmen, including Jake Fraser-McGurk, Prithvi Shaw, and Shai Hope, who struggled to make an impact.

However, the game took a dramatic turn when Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel built a formidable 113-run partnership, steering their team to 127/3 in 15 overs. The momentum surged for the home side as Pant displayed his classic batting prowess by smashing two sixes off Mohit Sharma’s over, one of which was off Sharma’s trademark slower ball.

On the final delivery of the 16th over, Mohit delivered a full-length ball outside off. Despite his reputation for his deceptive slower ball, the 35-year-old Indian bowler opted for the same tactic against the Delhi skipper.

However, Pant had different plans as he carefully assessed the delivery, adjusting his stance slightly. When the ball landed in his hitting zone, the left-hander unleashed a powerful stroke over long-off, sending it sailing for a maximum.

Pant continued to dominate, hammering Mohit for 31 runs in the final over, including four sixes, to finish unbeaten on 88 off 43 deliveries, while Mohit conceded a record-breaking 73 runs in his four overs. Social media platforms exploded with amazement as Pant’s spectacular six sparked discussions about his resurgence in form.
