Watch: SRK’s Applause for Pant’s No-Look Six Shot Breaks the Internet

In a high-octane clash between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday, Delhi’s skipper Rishabh Pant showcased his batting prowess with a blazing half-century in a daunting 273-run chase. Despite his valiant effort, Kolkata Knight Riders emerged victorious with a resounding 106-run win, catapulting them to the top of the table.

However, Pant’s innings was not without its moments of brilliance, notably marked by a jaw-dropping no-look six off Venkatesh Iyer’s delivery, which even prompted KKR co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan to stand up and applaud the young cricketer’s audacity.

Pant’s Heroics:

Throughout his innings, Pant’s aggressive approach rattled the Kolkata Knight Riders’ bowling attack. His 55-run knockoff just 25 balls was studded with 4 fours and 5 sixes, showcasing his ability to take on even the most daunting run chases. However, it was his unconventional shot off Venkatesh Iyer that stole the show. With the bowler missing his line and delivering it on the leg stump, Pant ingeniously flicked the ball over fine-leg for a maximum, all without even looking at the ball’s trajectory.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Tribute:

Such was the audacity and brilliance of Pant’s shot that it compelled Shah Rukh Khan, one of the owners of Kolkata Knight Riders, to rise from his seat and acknowledge the Delhi Capitals skipper’s sensational stroke play. Despite being on the opposing side, Khan’s gesture underlined the universal admiration for Pant’s exceptional talent and fearlessness on the field.
