Sanju Samson’s valiant 63-ball 119 went in vain as Rajasthan Royals (RR) fell 4 runs short in their opening fixture of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 against Punjab Kings (PBKS), in Mumbai, on 12 April.

Earlier, KL Rahul (91 off 50), Deepak Hooda (64 off 28), and Chris Gayle (40 in 28) helped Punjab to reach 221/6. In reply, RR unleashed the best out of them but failed to reach the target. Here is what they said on social media.

Rahul, the most consistent batsman in recent editions of the IPL, may usurp Suresh Raina’s moniker of Mr IPL soon, at least in views of Aakash Chopra and Sanjay Manjrekar.

Irfan Pathan advised others to draw inspiration from Hooda’s return to professional cricket after being banned for domestic cricket (for Baroda) a few months ago.

Chetan Sakariya’s journey to the IPL is nothing short of a fairytale. Like many others, Virender Sehwag reached out to his audience to reveal that.

Although Samson was adjudged the Man of the Match for his valour, Yuvraj Singh and Sehwag would have delighted if the RR skipper managed to take his team past the finish line.

With the century against Punjab, Samson has now joined an elite club in IPL records, featuring Gayle, Virat Kohli, Shane Watson, AB de Villiers and David Warner.
