Sanju Samson after hitting the first ball of Yuzvendra Chahal for six, went for a shot again on fifth ball and got out

Rajasthan Royals’ wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson got out early again in this edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday.

Coming in at No 3, Samson hit the first ball of the 8th over bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal for a massive six. Following that, he played a dot ball and took a single and after Robin Uthappa got out on the 4th ball of the over, Samson chased a wider loopy delivery outside the off-stump in an attempt of a big shot and hit it straight into the hands of the long-off fielder.

He got a score of 9 (6).

He started this season with scores of 74 and 85 and since then hasn’t crossed 26 with five scores in single digits.

The netizens seemed frustrated with his performance in the last few games and criticised the 25-year old for lack of consistency and temperament. Here are some of the reactions of the fans and experts:
