During the dying moments of the nailbiter between Rajasthan and Hyderabad, Rahul Tewatia benefited from an uncanny stroke of luck. Rashid Khan's delivery deflected off Hyderabad wicket-keeper Bairstow's leg and then hit the stumps, but the bails didn't fall off!
Tewatia went on to score a six and a four along with a precise smattering of singles and a double alongside Riyan Parag to nudge Rajasthan to victory by five wickets.
Twitter went abuzz at this amazing turn of events, and we round up some of the best reactions to the steadfast bails that would not quit their post!
