Suresh Raina’s carnage was had reached fever pitch and was on its way on become one of the special Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 innings. The sixth over of Parvinder Awana got 33 runs of the over. Move over Yusuf Pathan, Ab de Villiers or any other special that has been witnessed so far. Straight drives and flicks were raining the over started with two flicks that beat the fielders that were placed fine inside the ring.

Awana continued to over-pitch the ball and the southpaw carved the ball out of the park  in consecutive deliveries. Then Awana bowled a desperate full toss that went for a four behind square for a boundary. The no ball ball and the last ball went for two more fours and brought the crowd to the edge of their seats. In an unfortunate misjudgement by Brendon McCullum and Raina in the middle, George Bailey’s direct hit brought an end to the special knock.

Virender Sehwag‘s vintage hundreds made a comeback in the most stunning fashion to take Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to a humungous score of 226 for six after MS Dhoni decided to continue to play to Chennai Super Kings‘ (CSK) strengths by electing to field first. All of Chennai’s bowlers were taken apart in a knock that had the Sehwag rubber-stamp on it during his knock of 122 from 57 balls. There were good supporting cameos by Manan Vohra at the top and David Miller  played a blinder towards the end.
