Rajasthan Royals’ captain Sanju Samson hardly fails to entertain the opposition, be it through his batting or his keeping. Sanju Samson is a clean striker of the ball and is an exceptional keeper, with his captaincy skills also showing promises. The right-handed batsman also copped a blow on his crotch in the current encounter against the Mumbai Indians in Delhi; however, he let out a smile.
The incident occurred in the second over, which was delivered by Jaydev Unadkat. The left-arm seamer bowled to Rohit Sharma, who was beaten and the ball went straight to Sanju Samson behind the stumps. Samson could not collect the ball cleanly and instead copped a blow on his groin. Even though the ball seemed to have hit well and felt like a nasty one, he was not much bothered about the same.
Meanwhile, Sanju Samson’s performance was instrumental in carrying the Rajasthan Royals to a competitive total of 172 against the Mumbai Indians in Delhi. The 26-year old struck 42 off 27 balls, laced with five boundaries and shared a vital 49-ball 57 run stand with Shivam Dube. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal gave their side a flying start, stitching a 66-run opening partnership after Samson lost the toss. Nevertheless, despite losing Rohit Sharma relatively early, Mumbai are well in control of the match.
Below is the clip of the incident involving Sanju Samson’s blow on his crotch:
