Rishabh Pant was at his best in Qualifier 1 against Chennai Super Kings. His innings was full of entertainment and gave fans another chance to react hilariously to his batting. With his team in trouble, the skipper of Delhi Capitals (DC) scored a well-compiled fifty to help his team reach 172/5 in 20 overs.
It was Pant’s one-handed six that caught the attention of cricket fanatics, who could not believe the ease with which the batter hit Shardul Thakur’s delivery into the stands.

Even umpire uses two hands for a six but Pant uses one

One day I would love to sit with @RishabhPant17 and hold his bat and measure his forearms! One hand sixes is about pure power: .. haven’t seen anyone do it as consistently. It’s almost as if he relishes the one handed six! Incredible pocket rocket! #CSKvsDC
