Rajat Patidar- Remember the name. While most of the trusted and the big names in the RCB camp failed to deliver with the bat in the all-important knockout match against Lucknow Super Giants at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata it is the relatively inexperienced Madhya Pradesh batter Patidar who has almost single-handedly kept Bangalore in the match.
While he had taken the attack to the opposition straightaway, wickets in the middle overs, stopped Bangalore's run flow before he decided to put his feet on the accelerator in the final five overs. Patidar smashed 3 sixes and 2 boundaries off Ravi Bishnoi's final over as RCB milked 27 runs from the 16th over of the innings.
While the first ball of the over was a single from Dinesh Karthik and the third was a drop from Deepak Hooda which went for a boundary, it was an otherwise dominating show from the 28-year-old batter.
