Now anything I would say about @KKRiders & the boys will mean nothing. The great man has spoken. Just so happy to see all in the team propping up the youngsters & making it count. Love you boys ‘lots of pyaar from a little afar’ https://t.co/T8irMiHJi8

Apart from this, Sachin Tendulkar was also full of praise for RR’s batsman, Sanju Samson. The youngster produced a jaw-dropping moment in this IPL match by taking a stunning catch at the boundary line to dismiss Pat Cummins. He fell on his face on the ground while taking a dive but didn’t leave his hold on the ball, wow moment!
Master Blaster appreciated Samson’s brilliant fielding skills on Twitter and recalled the bitter-sweet memories of experiencing a similar catch situation during the 1992 World Cup against West Indies. Have a look at the former cricketer’s words for Sanju Samson:
Brilliant catch by @IamSanjuSamson!
