The second T20I between India and Ireland is currently taking place at The Village in Dublin. Sanju Samson stole the limelight in the first innings with his blistering batting and made the crowd’s money worth after his show. 

Sanju Samson came to bat after India lost two quick wickets. The keeper-batter took a little bit of time to settle but once he found himself in, he didn’t look back and took the Irish pacers to the cleaners. It was expected that he would end up scoring big but unfortunately was unlucky. 

Sanju Samson chopped on off a delivery from Ben White. The spinner bowled a top-spinner outside off, to which the keeper batter tried to smash it through covers. He was on the backfoot but went too hard at the ball as a result of which he ended up getting a thick inside edge that deflected back onto the stumps. 

Here’s the video of Sanju Samson:
