During his whirlwind knock of 53 off 31 balls in Rajasthan’s match against Punjab on September 27 in Sharjah, Tewatia hit pacer Sheldon Cottrell for five sixes in an over, which helped the Royals chase down a mammoth 224-run target to register a four-wicket win and register the highest successful run chase in the history of the IPL, breaking their own previous record set in 2008.
