Rishabh Pant, the fearless young wicket-keeper batsman of Delhi Daredevils hammered the best bowling attack of Sunrisers Hyderabad to record the highest score (128*) by an Indian in the IPL History.
The southpaw with his destructive batting surpassed Murali Vijay's (Chennai Super Kings) score of 127 runs against Rajasthan Royals in 2010.
Overall, Chris Gayle's unbeaten 175 runs against Pune Warriors in 2013 is the highest score in the IPL till date.
The aggressive left-hander literally toyed the Sunrisers bowlers by hitting some breathtaking shots and dispatched them to all parts of the Feroz Shah Kotla in his unbeaten century innings.
Moreover, this power hitter becomes the youngest player to complete thousand runs in the cash-rich league. Previously, Delhi Daredevils skipper Shreyas Iyer has this record to his name.
The 20-year old batsman did not spare any bowler and was unstoppable in this particular match, where he slammed 15 boundaries and 7 maximums in his 128* off 63 balls.
Rishabh Pant blasted Bhuvneshwar Kumar for 3 consecutive sixes and 2 boundaries in the 20th over that includes unbelievable reverse scoops over the slip cordon region.
The left hander's destruction came up especially in the last 5 overs, where he scored 67 runs individually, which is the second best (runs in last 5 overs) after Andre Russell's (KKR) 68 runs against CSK.
Incidentally, this century by Rishabh Pant is the 50th one in the Indian Premier League history.
