On Friday, Sanju Samson was on a roll during the intense match between RR (Rajasthan Royals) and SRH (Sunrisers Hyderabad). After smashing an unbeaten century and becoming the first player to do so in IPL 2019, Samson turned out to be a danger for the bowlers and became the sole-warrior of his team.
But, while the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers failed to stop his rampage, a pizza delivery guy actually managed to halt him for a brief moment, without even making any extra efforts.
I have never heard of such incidents before, so this definitely shook me as I kept on laughing and watching the video on repeat.
During a crucial moment in the match when the score was 101/1, right when Vijay Shankar ran to bowl, Samson got distracted by the pizza delivery guy walking right in front of the sightscreen. Samson smiled at the guy and signalled at him to move away.March 30, 2019
Once he was out of the sight, Samson got back into his lethal form and build a score of 198/2 against SRH. Although Rajasthan Royals couldn't win against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Samson was the uncontested star of the match.
Also, let's be honest, we can't blame Samson here, can we? After all, who doesn't like pizzas? (let's keep the pineapple pizza lovers out of this discussion.)
