In a nail-biting IPL match that took place on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Kolkata Knight Riders KKR defeated Gujarat Titans GT, the defending champions, by 205 runs thanks to Rinku Singh’s five sixes on the final five balls.
As the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated the Gujarat Titans (GT) in a dramatic match at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, Rinku Singh produced a stunning finish to a game in the history of the world’s richest cricket league. This was arguably the greatest finish in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Before Rinku Singh pulled off a miracle, it appeared that GT would win for the third time in a row after Rashid Khan scored a stunning hat trick. KKR required 29 hurries to win in the last finished, with uncapped Indian pacer Yash Dayal entrusted with the obligation of astounding the.
Rinku was prepared to accomplish the unthinkable when Umesh Yadav singled off the first pitch. The young batter hit five sixes (6-6-6-6-6) in a row to ensure KKR’s memorable victory, which was their second consecutive win and the defending champions’ first of the season.
With no balls remaining, Rinku won an unlikely victory for KKR with a score of 48 in 21 balls. Even though everyone in the KKR camp was happy, young pacer Dayal had a bad day. His team lost their first game of the season, and he gave up five sixes in a row.

As this was the highest target successfully achieved in a final over of an IP match, Rinku set a number of records along the way. After MS Dhoni’s assault on Axar Patel, KKR scored 29 runs, breaking the previous record of 23 set in 2016 when RPSG played Punjab.
In contrast, Yash Dayal’s 0 for 69 is the second-worst performance in IPL history. The record actually has a place with Basil Thampi, who surrendered 70 runs for SRH against the RCB in 2018. Only five players in IP history have hit five sixes in one over, and Rinku is one of them.
