New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Rajasthan Royals batsman Rahul Tewatia took a dangerous blow on the chest from an accidental beamer by Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Navdeep Saini during game 15 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. 

The incident occurred in the final over of the Delhi Capitals’s innings. Saini accidentally delivered a beamer, which Tewatia tried to scoop for a six but it ended by hitting him on the chest. The umpire called it a no-ball and a free hit was given, which Tewatia slammed for a huge six.

Tewatia played a brief but fiery innings of 24 off just 12 balls, which included three sixes. His contribution guided Rajasthan Royals to 154 at the end of 20 overs. 

The score was easily chased down by Royal Challengers Bangalore at a loss of just 2 wickets. Kohli played an unbeaten innings of 72 and was assisted by Devdutt Padikkal in the run chase. On his way to the half-century, Kohli became the first player to score 5500 runs in the Indian Premier League.

After the match Kohli praised Padikkal and said he has got some "serious talent because he's got reach, a great eye, a great balance and it's very difficult for the bowlers to continue bowling same lines and lengths against a leftie".

Tewatia had been instrumental in Rajasthan Royals' historic run chase of 224 against Kings XI punjab earlier this week.
