New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab's Axar Patel produced a stunning rear-guard action against the hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.

Patel came into bat in the 14th over after the fall of skipper Glenn Maxwell with KXIP stuttering at 79/5, and soon launched an counter offensive.

WATCH his sixes:

He went onto score an unbeaten 38 off 17 balls, laced with three fours and couple of towering sixes.

The highlight of his knock came in the last over of the innings, when he destroyed Shane Watson. The over leaked 19 runs, which included a six and two fours – all hit by Patel.
