Thursday night witnessed another enticing match with two Indian Youngsters coming up to play a game of their life.Delhi Daredevils rode on a fiery 97 from Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson’s 31-ball 61 to thrash Gujarat Lions by 7 wickets  at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. Delhi now have four wins from 10 games and are still in the playoff race while Suresh Raina’s men are out of the tournament.

The partnership between Pant and Samson dazzled the capacity crowd at the Kotla and the batsmen displayed fearless and powerful hitting. Chasing 209, Delhi Daredevils lost stand-in skipper Karun Nair for 12 but Pant joined Samson and turned the match on its head. The left-hander started the carnage when he thumped Basil Tampi over deep extra cover for a flat six, and proceeded to blast two sixes and a four off Pradeep Sangwan.

Then started a Pant show in truest sense ,hitting off sixes on each direction. Samson, who was watching the carnage from the other end, was boosted by Pant’s aggression and slammed two sixes off leg-spinner Ankit Soni.Earlier, Gujarat Lions notched up 208/7, their highest score in IPL thanks to a magnificent 77 from skipper Suresh Raina and an aggressive 65 from Dinesh Karthik. The batsmen shared a 133-run stand for the third wicket, which helped Gujarat Lions recover from a disastrous start.

But the two stole the show and the twitter exploded up on praises of these both youngsters. Gautam Gambhir too joined the league quoting the batting prowess of these two brilliants stating it classy and also brutal.He heaped all glories on the partnership of Pant and Samson.

He quoted, “The exuberance of youth yet the calmness of veterans. What a partnership guys, Sanju Samson & Rishab Pant Congratulations!”
