Walking in to bat for Leicestershire at No.7 in the 16th over, with his team chasing 190 to win, Rehan got going immediately, hitting the very first ball that he faced for an outrageous six. The batter opened his bat against the short ball by George Scrimshaw at the very last minute, raised both feet off the ground and upper-cut the delivery over third man for a first-ball maximum.
This is not the first time that Rehan has played a ridiculous shot, having recently hit an extraordinary helicopter pull shot en route to a County Championship fifty.
Rehan scored an unbeaten 28 in 14 balls against Derbyshire, but his efforts went in vain as his side fell short by two runs.

That’s one way to play your first ball at the crease 😲
