Tripathi made 37 off 28 balls as Pune set a tricky 158-run target for RCB. And it turned out to a more than enough total as they won the match by 61 runs.

New Delhi: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) opener Rahul Tripathi on Saturday hit a monster six to welcome Sreenath Aravind in their IPL match at Pune.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first. Tripathi and Ajinkya Rahane opened the innings for Pune.

In the fifth over. Kohli introduced Aravind into the attack, and the pacer received a rather rude welcome from Tripathi.

Aravind's full delivery was hoisted high and mighty over long-on, and the ball remained hit. The 98m long hit almost sailed outside the stadium.

Here's the video of the monster six:
