During the Royal Challengers Bangalore defeat to the Punjab Kings on Friday, Rajat Patidar committed a big six that ultimately injured an unfortunate fan. During RCB’s ninth game chase 210, Patidar rammed Harpreet Brar over a bull corner. The ball traveled a long distance and hit the seating area under the fence and eventually hit the fan. The camera panned to show a woman in a seat guarding an elderly fan, who looked uncomfortable.

Six Patidar is a big one at 102 meters. The right -hander eventually made 26 of 21 and was sent off by Rahul Chahar.
RCB ended up making just 155/9 in response to PBKS ’209/9, with Glenn Maxwell getting the highest score with 35.
Earlier, several top-level massacres from Jonny Bairstow (66 of 29) and a strong finishing knock by Liam Livingstone (70 of 42) empowered the Punjab Kings to huge numbers after they were put in a shot.
Bairstow’s brilliant start has generated PBKS to the highest score by any team in Powerplay this season.
He blasted 59 of 22 in the first six overs as PBKS raced to 83/1 during the period.
Wanindu Hasaranga scored two goals for RCB, while Harshal Patel returned a 4/34 figure, but their heroism was not enough to hold Punjab to a chasable number.
PBKS climbed to sixth place in the IPL 2022 points table, with 12 points from 12 matches so far.
RCB remained in fourth place after the match, with 14 points from 13 matches.
