Sanju Samson scored his maiden Twenty20 century to help Delhi Daredevils record their biggest victory in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday when they defeated Rising Pune Supergiant by 97 runs.
The 22-year-old Samson paced his 102-run knock off 63 balls, while South African Chris Morris hit a blistering unbeaten 38 off just nine balls at the end to give Daredevils a total of 205.
Samson hit five boundaries off his first 10 balls after arriving at the crease in only the second over and put on half-century stands with Sam Billings (24) and Rishabh Pant (31). After negotiating the twin leg-spin challenge of Imran Tahir and Adam Zampa, he cut loose in the last four overs.
He brought up his century with a straight six off Zampa before the Australian leg-spinner bowled him off the next delivery. Samson hit eight fours and five sixes.
