Sanju Samson Maiden Century in IPL 10
Question in detail
Leaving the woeful domestic season behind, Sanju Samson, the unsung hero slammed his maiden T20 century in the 9th match of IPL season 10. On the back of Samson's 66-ball 102 followed by Chris Morris' late blitz, Delhi Daredevils posted 206 on the scoreboard. Samson's fine essay tipped the scales to Delhi's side, eventually ensuring the opponents' (RPS) abject surrender. The 22-year batsman takes a bow obviously because it was one of his best innings, also the first century of the season. Sanju Samson's maiden century in IPL 10 made his side forget their desperate loss to RCB in the last match, which was more a nightmare than a defeat.
In Delhi's first match against RCB, Sanju seemed to be striving for his form. He went cheaply at 13, but a fabulous comeback knock in the very next game shined him sharply on the batsmen's chart. He has surpassed Steven Smith's 110 to cement the second spot on the table. Yes, he is the second leading run scorer in IPL 2017 at present next to KKR's Chris Lynn (125).
Sanju has scored 115 runs so far in the tournament at an average of 57.50 and a strike rate of 155.33. His hundred-run knock against RPS includes 8 boundaries and 5 sixes. Sanju Samson's maiden century in IPL 10 also helped Daredevils lift on the point table. The least Sanju will be eyeing now is to become the leading run scorer in IPL 2017.
Does Sanju Samson have the potential to claim orange cap in IPL 2017?
