Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson had some motivating words for Yashasvi Jaiswal as was one hit away from a historic century. The Mumbai-born batter was batting at 94 in 46 balls after scoring the fastest half-century in IPL history. Jaiswal reached this milestone in 13 balls and then continued this form and was one hit away from his second century.
This incident occurred in the 13th over of the match, where Jaiswal had amassed five runs. But then on the next two balls, the RR opener had scored just one run and was standing on the non-strikers' end. But instead of finishing off the game, Sanju Samson decided to block away the ball. Then as the over was completed Samson was seen yelling, " Chaka maar b***ch**". But unfortunately, Jaiswal couldn't hit his 100 as he only managed to hit a boundary.
With that four, Rajasthan Royals registered a stunning nine-wicket win to jump up to the third place on the points table. Reacting to this incredible win, Sanju Samson said, "I didn't have to do anything today. Just put bat on ball and watch him play. We are used to it now, even the bowlers know how he goes in the powerplay. He enjoys batting in the power play. (On Chahal) I think it is time to give him the tag of legend. We are grateful to have him in the franchise."
"Never have to speak to him, give him the ball and he knows what to do. He bowls at the death as well, very pleasing for me as a captain. (On the road ahead) We have two more quarter-finals to play, the pressure in never off in the IPL. Each game, each over is important. You can sense how the atmosphere is when a legend like Jos Buttler throws his wicket away for Jaiswal. Very happy today but we have a few more matches to go," he further added.
