Throughout the 15 years of the Indian Premier League, we have seen so many records made or broken. There are so many moments in the IPL history which remain in the hearts of fans for years to come and which made the tournament more iconic.
In this article, we will have a look at the top five moments in the history of IPL:
5. Rinku Singh’s five sixes against Gujarat Titans, 2023
Kolkata Knight Riders took on defending champions Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi stadium in match number 13 of the ongoing season of IPL. Batting first, GT posted a big total of 204 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. In reply, KKR got close to the target, thanks to Venkatesh Iyer, who scored 83 runs off 40 balls. But after his wicket, they lost momentum, and Rashid Khan’s hat trick took the game away from KKR.
KKR needed 29 runs off the last over which seemed to be an impossible task with just three wickets in hand but young batter Rinku Singh had other plans that night. On the very first ball of the 20th over by Yash Dayal, Umesh Yadav took a single to bring Rinku on strike.
After that, Rinku took the bowler on remand as he went on to hit five consecutive sixes due to which KKR won the game by 3 wickets, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. The 25-year-old batter pulled off one of the greatest chases in IPL history as he remained unbeaten on 48 runs off just 21 balls.
