Under the captaincy of Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals (RR) are currently locking horns with Royal al Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Match 13 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. After being asked to bat, RR’s Devdutt Padikkal smashed Mohammed Siraj a six over the deep square leg, which reminded fans of a certain Yuvraj Singh.

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and asked RR to bat first. Yashasvi Jaiswal was the first man to be dismissed, as David Willey cleaned him up in the second over. The wicket brought in Devdutt Padikkal at the crease. In the next over, bowled by Mohammed Siraj, Padikkal, the former RCB player, was off the mark in style.

Siraj bowled a fuller delivery on the pads, and Padikkal picked that up nicely before sending it over the deep square leg boundary for a six. It was a pure wrist work from the left-handed batter, and many fans compared that shot with India’s legendary all-rounder Yuvraj Singh’s signature flick. It was the second ball that Padikkal had faced, and with that, he began his inniings.

Here is the video of the six from Devdutt Padikkal:
