New Delhi: While most of the Mumbai Indians' batsmen have struggled to find consistency in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, Ambati Rayudu is someone who has been a stand out performer for the franchise this year.

While Rayudu is making headlines through his performances on field, he is even challenging his teammates to raise their performances.

In Mumbai's previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, despite Kieron Pollard remaining unbeaten on 35, it was Rayudu who hit the biggest six of the match – 108 metres.

Soon after the match was over, Rayudu gifted a new bat to Pollard and challenged him to hit an even bigger six in the next match.

Mumbai Indians' official website also posted a photograph where Rayudu can be seen handing over the bat to the West Indian.

Now as Mumbai take on Kings XI Punjab today, it remains to be seen whether the big-hitting right-hander can got past Rayudu's record.
