During the 53rd match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Jaipur, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Mohammad Siraj eventually dismissed Heinrich Klaasen after he hit him for a six and a four in the same over.

Earlier Ajinkya Rahane, captain of Rajasthan Royals, had won the toss and chose to bat. Rajasthan Royals made three changes to their playing eleven, bring in Heinrich Klaasen, Shreyas Gopal and Ben Laughlin in place of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Anureet Singh. On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore fielded an unchanged playing eleven.

Siraj bowled a slower delivery to deceive Klaasen.

Mohammad Siraj was introduced into the attack in the eighth over of the innings. He ended up with bowling figures of 4-0-33-1. Bowling the penultimate over of the innings, he conceded 13 runs and picked up a wicket.

On the second delivery of the over, Klaasen opened the face of the bat to a fuller delivery to hit through the backward point region for a six. On the next following delivery, he walked across to a full-toss and hit it for a four through the fine-leg region. Siraj got his revenge in the final ball of the over, after Klaasen hit a high ball straight in the hands of Moeen Ali at long-off. He ended up scoring 32 (21) with the help of three fours and a six.
