IPL 2018: Twitter Erupts As Sanju Samson Fires Rajasthan Royals To Huge Total Against Royal Challengers Bangalore

Riding on Sanju Samson’s brilliant fifty, Rajasthan Royals posted a daunting target of 217 for 4 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

On the very expected lines, Royal Challengers skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl first. Ajinkya Rahane and D’Arcy Short made a cautious start with the former taking his chances while the latter struggled to get going.

The duo added 49 runs off 33 balls before Chris Woakes sent back the Royals skipper. Rahane scored 36 off 20 with the help of 6 fours and a six. 4 runs later, Short’s painful stay at the crease came to an end after he edged an Yuzvendra Chahal delivery behind the stumps. The Australian took 17 balls to contribute 11 runs to the scoreboard.

Sanju Samson and Ben Stokes then took charge of the innings. The duo played some delightful shots to add 49 runs before Chahal castled Stokes for 27. Samson was then joined in by Jos Buttler. In the meantime, Samson completed his fifty off 34 balls and was well supported by Buttler as the duo took the score past 150-run mark.

The duo shifted gears in the slog overs and runs started to flow for the visitors. The duo added 73 runs off 36 balls to lay the platform for a huge total before Buttler departed. Samson, however, remained till the end, scoring 92 off 45 to help his side post the huge total. His innings was studded with 10 sixes and a couple of fours.
