The Eliminator match between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022 was indeed a nail-biting one. RCB led by Faf du Plessis were invited to bat first and they posted a total of 207 runs. LSG started picking runs very late and in the end, the KL Rahul side lost the game by 14 runs.

If someone grabbed the eyeballs in the match, then it was Rajat Patidar who mustered 112 runs in just 54 deliveries. He made a record since it was the fastest IPL century in the entire history of the game.

“Rajat Patidar did what Sanju Samson couldn’t. It was his night. Look at his wagon wheel, there were some huge hits through the on side but he played attractive strokes through the off side too. Simply superb innings,” said Hayden on Star Sports after the match.

The 28-year-old Patidar belongs to a business family. His family wanted him to join the business if his cricket didn’t work out but Patidar had other ideas. “He always wanted to play cricket and his interest in his family business was last. He just loved playing and the good part was that he never shied away from working hard.”
