The third match of the ongoing edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) saw Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad smash a six that hit a Tata Tiago EV on display at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The ball hit the rear door of the EV and an image of the dented car soon went viral on social media.

While the powerful hit by Gaikwad won the hearts of CSK fans, the smash on the car also means that Tata Motors will donate 5,00,000 towards enhancing the biodiversity of coffee plantations in Karnataka by planting saplings. The automaker, which is the official sponsorship partner of IPL 2023, had announced that each time the ball hits Tiago EV cars on display at a stadium, it will make the aforementioned donation.
