Rajasthan Royal’s wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson played a masterful inning, slamming his eight half-centuries in the Indian Premier League as he guided his side to a commanding total of 217/4 against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The cool-headed 23-year-old entered the scene in the seventh over after Rajasthan Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for 36, from then onwards it was all about Samson as he smashed five sixes, reaching the mark half-century in the 34 deliveries in the 17th over.
That was a special innings from Sanju Samson. Great Vishu gift. Love watching him bat. 217 even for RCBs formidable batting line up is a daunting total #RCBvRR— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) April 15, 2018
Samson raised 49 runs for the third wicket with England all-rounder Ben Stokes and then kept up the fight with Jos Buttler as Rajasthan Royals looked to put up a fighting total. Samson ended with 92 runs off just 45 balls.
