On Sunday, Tewatia played an innings that can define his career if already not. During Rajasthan Royals' epic run chase against King XI Punjab, the 27-year-old, a spinner by profession, was promoted up the order.

But the left-handed batsman, who had an IPL stint with KXIP, was very very slow off the block as the target seems to have moved beyond Royals' sight. Then, Tewatia hit Sheldon Cottrell for five sixes in an over to, well, silence his critics, who a little a while were making all sorts of comments.
