The fourth match between Rajasthan and Punjab in IPL 2021 was spectacular. By reaching close to victory, the Rajasthan team lost. The match lasted until the last ball. Sanju Samson was out in the affair of hitting a six in the last ball. Deepak Hooda caught Samson and named it Punjab. But both teams deserve congratulations for making this match exciting.

Even after losing the match, its hero was Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson, whose bold innings of 119 runs will be remembered. Talking after the match, Sanju said that he felt that the last ball was hit for six, but he was caught out.

In the second innings, he came to bat, many hopes were from his opener Ben Stokes, but he kept going without opening an account. After that Sanju Samson handled the innings and kept his team in the match till the last ball.
In this exciting match, what people are saying about Punjab’s victory over Rajasthan, can read here:
Not necessarily. It’s whether you think Samson is more likely to hit a 6 than Morris is to hit 4 or 6. The way Samson was hitting it I can see why he would have confidence in himself.
No wrong answer really https://t.co/shzLCGkxRZ

Naam hi nahi Badla, Shayad kismat bhi badli. Good win for Punjab Kings. Sanju Samson was absolutely brilliant to hit his 3rd IPL century, but Deepak Hooda was top class. His innings was the difference. #RRvPBKS pic.twitter.com/O3cYTKCFvq

It’s unfair that one team had to lose tonight. Sanju’s innings will be remembered as one of the finest #IPL innings in the losing cause. The hitting we have witnessed today was simply unbelievable. No wonder we are calling Wankhede as the Six Hitting Central. #IPL2021 #RRvPBKS
