The six hitting contest was organized in three parts and it had an unlikely winner. 

The video of the contest was shared by the official Instagram handle of KKR. “Catch the final episode of Might of the Knights to know who’s powered his way to the winner’s list this time,” KKR captioned the video on the photo and video sharing application.
