Delhi Capitals (DC) secured a hard-fought victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR) by a margin of 20 runs in a tense match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Tuesday. With this win, DC have climbed to fifth position on the points table, hinting at a potential turnaround in their fortunes.

The match was full of challenges for the Capitals, particularly in the second innings when they grappled with the task of containing the relentless onslaught from Sanju Samson. Until the 15th over, the visitors seemed to have the situation under control. However, the momentum shifted dramatically for the Royals when their key player, Samson, departed.

In the pivotal 16th over, Samson attempted a big shot off Mukesh Kumar‘s delivery, only to find Shai Hope stationed at long-on, who seemingly caught the ball near the boundary ropes. While there was a controversy about whether Hope’s foot touched the rope, the decision flashed ‘OUT’ on the big screen. Despite Samson’s visible frustration, he had to make his way back to the pavilion, taking RR’s hopes of victory along with him.

Kuldeep Yadav’s supportive story for Sanju Samson

After Sanju’s remarkable innings of 86 runs off 46 balls went in vain, Kuldeep Yadav, the standout bowler for DC, took to social media to share a heartfelt tribute to the RR skipper. On his Instagram story, Kuldeep posted a picture of himself alongside Sanju, captioning it with “Chetta,” a term in Malayalam that translates to “elder brother.” Fans responded positively to this gesture from the spinner, expressing their appreciation for his empathy and sportsmanship.
