Ambati Rayudu six vs Virat Kohli's six against Pakistan
Kaif described Rayudu's knock as a game-changing moment.

Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif praised Ambati Rayudu for his outstanding cameo in the final against the Gujarat Titans (GT). Kaif highlighted a six that Rayudu scored off Mohit Sharma’s bowling in the 13th over. Anticipating a slower delivery, Rayudu waited on the back foot and flat-batted the ball over the head of the long-off, resulting in a massive six.

During an interview, Mohammad Kaif compared this shot and the one Virat Kohli executed against Pakistani speedster Haris Rauf in the T20 World Cup. Kaif described Rayudu’s knock as a game-changing moment. He even emphasized the importance of his innings within the context of the match.

Kaif believed that the backfoot six Rayudu hit was the standout shot of the tournament. He acknowledged Rayudu’s emotional state but credited him for concluding his IPL career on such a high note.
