The Kings XI Punjab batsman Hashim Amla smashed the ball out of the stadium during the contest against Mumbai Indians. It was the second delivery of the 16th over of the game from Lasith Malinga, bowled at a speed of 122 kph. Hashim Amla anticipated the delivery quite well and smashed the ball high up in the air with bat speed of 135 kph.
From the tv sets, it looked like the ball has only got elevation sans any power but the ball went out of the stadium, travelling a distance of 97 metres.
The very next ball Amla faced was also a six. He churned out a total of 22 runs from that over, carrying team’s score to 161 from 139.
Here is the video of the incident –
