Shaw became the second batsman after Ajinkya Rahane to hit six fours in an over in the IPL. In 2012, Rahane was the first player to achieve the unique feat as a Rajasthan Royals player. Rahane’s six fours came against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Rahane had hit Sreenath Aravind for six boundaries in an over at the MA. Chinnaswamy stadium.

Mavi conceded 25 runs in the opening over as he was taken to the cleaners. Despite a packed off-side field, Shaw kept picking the gaps and KKR skipper Eoin Morgan was taken aback by the onslaught upfront. Shaw came into the IPL on the back of a dream run in the domestic circuit where he amassed 800 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Meanwhile, KKR has disappointed once again. The Kolkata franchise seemed to have lacked the intent and were outplayed in all three departments.
