Watch: Sanju Samson has a thug life moment in SMAT match
India’s talented wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson is currently leading Kerala in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament. Kerala started the tournament on a positive note by beating Puducherry by 6 wickets. Credit goes to the players who implemented good performances on the field.
During the game, Kerala players namely Sreesanth and Sanju Samson had their fair share of moments. Sreesanth made a comeback to competitive cricket after 7 long years and it was totally worth it. The 37-year-old pacer proved that age is just a number by taking a wicket in the second over.
The veteran fast bowler who had earlier conceded that he has up to 7 years of cricket left in him showcased his bowling potential when he bowled to Puducherry opener, Fabid Ahmed. The fast bowler made a mess of his off-stump and pulled off an animated celebration. That’s how he reintroduced himself to the game.
Samson’s thug life moment
While Sreesanth had the best moment in his competitive game, Kerala skipper Samson too had a thug life moment which was the highlight of the match. The right-handed batsman was seen having a candid chat with his partner Sachin Baby about a bowler he doesn’t like and would clear the ball over the fence.
Just like the way he said, he hit a six in the next ball. Samson drew plaudits for his boss moment during the game. The netizens couldn’t stop praising the Kerala skipper for providing absolute entertainment and the video of the same has gone viral on social media platforms.
It all happened during the 11th over of Kerala’s run-chase when Samson had first asked Sachin Baby, who was at the non-striker’s end. “Let me give you one”. “Did you not see Jada show up …” The very next delivery he launched one for a six. How about that for a shot!
