Match 4, CSK Vs RR : After Sachin Desert storm, Sanju Samson desert storm hits Sharjah

Sanju SamsonA blistering knock of 74 off 32 balls by Sanju Samson reminiscences the Sachin desert storm innings that came in the 1998 coca-cola series against Australia.

Sanju Samson helps Rajasthan Royals topple CSK by 16 runs in the fourth match of the Dream11 IPL. Sanju Samson has proved once again why he is the top notch player among youngsters in India. He played a magnificent inning. It was raining and long sixes at Sharjah by the bat of Sanju Samson.

Though the ground dimensions are small Sharjah but the ease at which this young lad from Kerala was smoking sixes into the stands was something very extraordinary.

It seemed like for a moment that, a batting machine who has the capability to hit sixes at will at every ball was placed at the crease. Samson 74 runs knock which came off just 34 balls included 9 mouth-watering sixes with just 1 four.

Earlier, CSK won the toss and put RR to bat first. Smith assisted Samson and knocked 67 runs off 40 balls.

After Samson’s dismissal, wickets were falling at regular intervals but Jofra Archer ensured that RR reaches the 200 figure mark and he joined Samson as he took Lungi Ngidi in the final over and torn apart with 4 consecutive sixes. Ngidi gave away 30 runs in the final over which included 2 no balls and 1 wide apart from 4 sixes.

Faf du Plessis played a similar knock like Samson but it was way too late for CSK as they failed to cross the line by 16 runs.

Sanju Samson was adjudged the man of the match award. In the post-match interview, he said – ” My game plan is stand and deliver. If it’s in the arc I go for it, and it’s very important to keep the intent to hit the ball if it’s there to be hit. I’ve been working hard on my fitness, diet and training, and on my strength, because my game relies a lot on power hitting.”

“I think range-hitting is what the game demands in this generation. I had time to work out in these 5 months, and I think I’ve increased that ability. Everyone likes to keep wickets (about Buttler and Uthappa as alternate options) and no one likes running around, but it’s up to the coach. We are happy to bring smiles on the fans’ faces and we hope to continue doing so.”
