Though the wickets kept falling on the other end of the crease, but SKY didn’t let the pressure get to his head and affect his game. He single-handily blasted Bangalore bowlers all over the park. He was hitting the ball according to his will and it was nothing less than eye-treat to watch his hit some stunning shots. He completed his half-century off 29 balls and turned the fate of the game.
Not just this, SKY finished off the chase in a stunning way by smashing a four. Playing a heroic knock, he scored 79 runs off 43 balls, smashing 10 fours and 3 sixes.
Later after taking his team to the winning side, it was SKY’s gesture towards his team sitting in the dugout, that stole all the attention. SKY gestured that “I got this” to his teammates. The video of the same has been going viral on social media.

He is not a fool he is cunning dog . All those players who perform well against RCB will not be selected in Indian squad as it happened with Mahender Bisla who pioneered victory of KKR against CSK and never got selected for steam India

Being the top scorer today
That's the best reply for not being selected
