SANJU YOU BEAUTY, WHAT A KNOCK

Sanju Samson’s 63 ball 119 was the first century of the tournament this year.

It was a night to forget for the Rajasthan Royals side after a 4 run defeat to Punjab Kings yesterday at the Wankhede Stadium. But their captain has every reason, to be proud of himself after a wonderful 119 run knock of 63 deliveries, single handedly bringing Rajasthan Royals back to the game, who almost had lost their hopes from the game after an awful bowling performance.

It’s the first century of this year’s IPL tournament and the third century of Saanson in his IPL career and it’s an amazing fact that all his centuries were the first century of the respective tournaments. K.L Rahul had a chance to dismiss Sanju Samson early in the starting overs but a silly drop handed him a lifeline, which he used to its best.

The century included 12 boundaries a d 7 sixes. Even though he could not finish his inning with a win, he would be satisfied with his performance and would look to continue this form till the end of the season. Sanju Samson will again lead Rajasthan Royals in their next match on Thursday against Delhi Capitals.
