Faf du Plessis, skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore, smashed a 115-metre six against Lucknow Super Giants in Bengaluru on Monday. The ball sailed out of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium as du Plessis pulled a short delivery from Ravi Bishnoi over deep midwicket. The RCB skipper’s six is now the biggest of the ongoing IPL 2023 season.
The South African clobbered a total of five sixes and as many fours in his unbeaten 46-ball 79 as Royal Challengers Bangalore posted a mammoth 212 for two in 20 overs.
