Go and hit a six! Samson shows kindness to Jaiswal, without looking at his own gain
In IPL 2023, Yashasvi Jaiswal has been in stormy form. He continued the same form against Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday (May 11). KKR lost to Rajasthan Royals by 9 wickets at Eden Gardens Stadium, Kolkata. The match could have been decided in the 13th over, but Sanju Samson’s bravery gave Rajasthan one more ball to win.
Rajasthan won the toss and decided to bowl first. Batting first, the host Kolkata Knight Riders managed to score 149 for 8 in 20 overs. Rajasthan were set a target of 150 for victory, which they achieved in just 13.1 overs. Yashasvi Jaiswal was the hero of the match. But Sanju Samson also stole the concert. Jaiswal scored 98* off 47 balls, while Samson smashed 48* off 29 balls.
Sanju Samson was on strike off the last ball of the thirteenth over. Rajasthan needed 3 runs to win. Also Samson needed only 2 runs for his half century. But this ball bowled by Suyash Sharma was plated by Samson and no run was scored. As a result, Jaiswal would come on strike in the next over. At this time Jaiswal was playing with 94 runs and needed 6 more runs for his century. Samson expected Jaiswal to hit a six after coming on strike in the next over. After the last ball was bowled for no run, Samson looked at Jaiswal and raised both hands in the air and signaled “hit for a six”. This video is currently going viral everywhere. Samson is widely appreciated by the fans.

However, Jaiswal could not live up to Samson’s expectations. Jaiswal failed to hit a six off the last ball and missed out on his century as well. Jaiswal couldn’t hit a six off the last ball, but he hit a boundary. As a result Jaiswal was able to contribute an unbeaten 98 runs. In this match, Jaiswal also scored the fastest fifty in IPL in just 13 balls. The record was previously held by KL Rahul and Pat Cummins, who each scored half-centuries in 14 balls.
