Rinku Singh, representing the Kolkata Knight Riders, accomplished an extraordinary feat by smashing five consecutive sixes in the final over to chase down 29 runs against the Gujarat Titans. This remarkable display of power hitting was not an isolated incident, as Rinku had been consistently impressive throughout the tournament, emerging as the highest scorer for KKR despite batting lower down the order. His consistent form led many veterans to predict his inevitable selection in the Indian T20 squad.

3. Sunil Gavaskar Seeks MS Dhoni's Autograph

The legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, overwhelmed by his admiration for MS Dhoni, seized the opportunity to secure the autograph of the beloved "Captain Cool."

Gavaskar, who was engaged in the post-match presentation, swiftly approached Dhoni upon spotting him nearby and obtained his autograph.

4. Kohli-Gambhir Confrontation

A heated faceoff between Virat Kohli of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of the Lucknow Super Giants, stole the spotlight after their second encounter in the league stage. Their intense exchange resulted in both players being penalized with a fine equal to 100% of their match fee. The discord originated during the second innings when Kohli engaged in a verbal altercation with Naveen-ul-Haq of the Lucknow Super Giants. Following the match, tensions escalated as both Kohli and Gambhir confronted each other during the customary post-match handshake, narrowly avoiding a physical altercation. This incident overshadowed the cricketing proceedings and sparked widespread debate.
