IPL 2019: WATCH – Marcus Stoinis hits a monstrous six off Jofra Archer, Virat Kohli cheers

Marcus Stoinis made his debut for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday in the IPL 2019 Match 14 against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

The Australian all-rounder played a crucial knock after the Red brigade lost their three top-order batsmen cheaply.


Stoinis slammed 31 runs from 28 balls, including a monstrous six which not only got the crowd on their feet but also forced RCB skipper Virat Kohli to applaud the former’s efforts.

The incident happened in the 14th over of first innings. Stoinis, who initially struggled to find his rhythm in the game, went after Jofra Archer on a Free-Hit and smashed him for a huge six. While RCB went past the 100-run mark with this humongous shot, Kohli was seen elated in the dressing room.


Here’s the video:

Later, RCB managed to put 158/4 on a difficult wicket, a target which the Royals chased down with one ball to spare by losing just three wickets.
