19-year old Rishabh Pant did the unbelievable as he smacked KKR’s Umesh Yadav for 26 runs in one over.
An aggressive batsman by nature, Pant showed no mercy to the national team pacer, hitting him for three sixes and two boundaries. One of those maximums included a wristy flick, which reminded us of Yuvraj Singh in his hay days.
He was finally dismissed for a 16-ball 38.
The left-handed batsman was brutal against Umesh Yadav hitting him to all parts of the ground
Here is how twitter reacted to the Pant blitzkrieg.

Wow. Tune in to watch Rishabh Pant. This kid can bat – most watchable young Indian cricketer IMO. Proper box office stuff.

The number of tweets done on Rishabh Pant is more than price money of PSL's most expensive player.
