Sanju Samson almost miraculously pulled off a heist in Lucknow before falling short at the final over against South Africa. India were down and out when the Kerala-born batsman walked into bat with him being the last recognized batter in a bowling-heavy side.

Samson initially took his time with Shreyas Iyer playing the role of an aggressor in a vital partnership. It was only after Shreyas’ dismissal that the Rajasthan Royals captain freed his arms and took on the attack. Samson was particularly aggressive against Tabraiz Shamsi and joined hands with Shardul Thakur to keep the Men in Blue in the hunt.

He reached his second ODI fifty as India chased an improbable 70 off the last five overs. Some lusty blows of Lungi Ngidi kept the hosts in chase but Samson failed to get strike in the penultimate over. Needing 30 off the last, Samson hit 20 off Tabraiz Shamsi to eventually cut down the margin of defeat to 9 runs. The 27-year-old himself remained unbeaten on 86 off just 63 balls, earning praise even from his opponents in Lucknow.
