IPL 2021 has started off with a roar. Till now we witness some of the finest, close and intense games. On Monday, after Rajasthan Royals fought against the Punjab Kings, one name that has become the talk of the town is Sanju Samson. The 26-year-old batsman was a debutant captain. He not only scored 119 in just 63 balls but he also managed to steal the show from the Punjab Kings. However, his ton went all in vain when he failed to score 5 runs on the last delivery.
The match went on for a close encounter after Arshdeep Singh, a young Left-arm medium-fast bowler managed to bowl a tight final over. We were on the edge of our seats when Rajasthan Royals needed 5 out of 2 balls. Seems pretty easy for when you have Sanju Samson and Chris Morris in the middle. But, it all went like a blunder when Sanju Samson denied for a single to the IPL’s most expensive buy, Chris Morris on the second last delivery. His denial gave rise to a tight spot for the Rajasthan Royal because now they had to score 5 runs on the last delivery. Sadly, Sanju Samson failed to hit the winning runs for his side and instead gave away his wicket on the last ball. Having said that, the Internet is all blazing with hilarious memes on Sanju Samson and Chris Morris for denying the single.
Have a look:
They paid 16.25 crores for Sanju Samson to turn Chris Morris back for the single.

However, even if Sanju Samson failed to score the winning runs he managed to win everything else!
