Matthew Hayden lavishes praise on Sanju Samson after Rajasthan Royals captain gives scare to Delhi Capitals

Sanju Samson was in his elements at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday (May 7) when he hammered Delhi Capitals (DC) to score a magnificent knock of 86 runs off just 46 deliveries.

Though the knock went in vain as Delhi emerged victorious by 20 runs, Samson’s knock gave chills to the Delhi fans as he batted at a strike rate of 186.95 and applied relentless pressure on Capitals’ bowling attack.

The Rajasthan Royals skipper struck eight fours and six sixes during the course of his knock and helped his side run perilously close to Delhi’s mountain of 221.

Samson’s whirlwind knock impressed Matthew Hayden and the former Aussie opener and a two-time ODI World Cup winner heaped praise on the Indian wicketkeeper-batter.

“Sanju Samson was batting like a dream, scoring 86 off 46 balls. He’s proven his worth time and again,” Hayden said on Star Sports.

“Throughout the tournament, he’s been a master blaster, handling both spin and pace with finesse.

Hayden mentioned that Samson needed more luck “towards the end of the match” to take his team over the line as Rajasthan put up a valiant show in pursuit of a mammoth total.
