4. Yusuf Pathan (Rajasthan Royals) – 100 runs
The IPL 2010 witnessed one of the most booming innings ever when Yusuf Pathan smashed a 37-ball hundred against the Mumbai Indians. The Rajasthan side which was chasing an improbable target of 213 runs was reeling at 66-4 after the half-way stage. From there a victory meant to score a further total of 146 runs off the last 64 deliveries with six wickets in hand which was even beyond anyone’s imaginations. But Pathan’s heroics gave RR a sniff of victory as he hammered a 37-ball century with the help of 8 monster sixes and 9 boundaries. But at the end, Yusuf’s inning went in vain as RR fell short of the total by merely 4 runs. It was a heartbreaking loss for the side and especially for Yusuf who gave his heart out to win his side the match.
