Twitter applauses Sanju Samson for his maiden IPL century

What a knock by the tender Delhi Daredevils’ batsman Sanju Samson who tore the Rising Pune Supergiant all-round bowling attack with a flurry of boundaries and became the first batsman to garner an exceptional century in the 10th edition of the Vivo IPL 2017.

Sanju Samson must be certainly pleased with the way he carried the resolute batting work rate on his shoulders. The talented lad produced a third-rate batting display in the concluded the domestic season this year but shut the critics with the knack of a stupendous knock against RPS.

Samson stole the spotlight in the cracker of the match when he registered his maiden century of his T20 career and the second youngest batsman to do so in IPL cricket. He knocked 102 runs off 63 balls including 8 fours and 5 sixes at a strike rate of 161.90.

Here is how Twitter reacted to Sanju Samson’s stellar cameo:

Delighted to see Sanju Samson playing a key innings. Fine talent. Needs an arm round his shoulder.

Samson’s 62-ball 100, is the sixth slowest IPL hundred behind Kohli (63), Pietersen (64), Tendulkar (66), Warner (66) & Pandey (67). #IPL

Sanju Samson should get at least half opportunities as Shikhar Dhawan has received. Will turn out to be a better wicket keeper batsman #IPL
