Finally, Sanju Samson and Manish Pandey got the chance in the third and last T20I match against Sri Lanka at Pune. Both were the benchwarmers in almost all the last home limited-overs series, expect Manish Pandey got one chance earlier Bangladesh. Meanwhile, everyone’s eye was on the wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson who fortunately got the chance in place of Rishabh Pant.

In Pune, Virat Kohli sacrificed his place to give Manish Pandey and Sanju Samson the chance to showcase their talent. Samson came to the field after Dhawan lost his place. The wicketkeeper impressed with his start by striking Lakshan Sandakan for a maximum. He had also a smile in his face after sending the ball to spectators. Indian skipper Virat Kohli also was surprised by the six from youngster’s bat. But, unfortunately, he was out on the very next ball bowled by Wanindu Hasaranga as he urged for the lbw and the umpire lifted the finger.

Samson was livid with himself and walks off the ground with disappointment. He was out for six runs in two balls. He has surely missed a golden opportunity of his career which he got after four years of his debut match but it is not the end.

And as soon as Samson departed, the fans took Twitter to remember Rishabh Pant in order to come up with some hilarious memes. Through the memes, fans wanted to say Rishabh Pant might be happy after seeing his competitor failing to do well.

Here are some creative memes from Twitter:
