Karn Sharma, KKR VS RCB IPL Match

The Indian Premier League continues to provide heart-stopping finishes, and the 36th match between KKR and RCB was no different. While KKR ultimately emerged victorious by a single run, the spotlight shone brightly on RCB’s bowler, Karn Sharma.

Chasing a daunting 223 for victory, RCB found themselves needing a near-impossible 21 runs off the final over bowled by the left-arm pacer, Mitchell Starc. Enter Karn Sharma, a bowling specialist known for his leg-spin.

Facing insurmountable odds, Sharma stunned everyone with a display of clean hitting. He smashed three consecutive sixes off Starc, reigniting hope for RCB fans. The first sailed over long-on, the second a powerful flick over mid-wicket, and the third a courageous pull that cleared the ropes.

Sharma’s phenomenal 20 runs off just 7 balls rewrote the record for the fastest score by a number 11 batsman in the IPL. He brought the equation down to a nerve-wracking 3 runs required off 2 balls. However, Starc displayed remarkable composure. He conceded just a single and a bye before dismissing Sharma leg before wicket with the final delivery of the match.
