Sanju Samson went onto beast mode as he smashed 74 off just 32 balls! He smashed 9 sixes and one boundaries. Such was his hitting that former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir came out on Twitter and lauded him. Here are some best Twitter reactions. Samson looked in great nick, while Smith, returning to competitive cricket after recovering from concussion suffered before the ODI series against England, made 67 off 49 balls to lay the base for Rajasthan's total.
Sanju Samson is not just the best wicketkeeper batsmen in India but the best young batsman in India!
Anyone up for debate?

Sanju Samson is not playing a blinder, this is serious, serious, serious and class batting.
Can't wait to see how MS counters this.
Exceptional fifty, what a start!

Sanju Samson reminds me of my younger days as a batsman on cricket 97 with cheat codes on. You make me nostalgic young man.

Sanju Samson’s six hitting is in a different league....the ease with which clears the fence (off fast and slow bowlers) is an absolute delight. Piyush v Samson should be a contest to watch.... #RRvCSK #IPL2020

What an innings that was!
Sanju batted brilliantly. He was firm initially but waited for that one big over which came in form of Piyush Chawla. He targeted the CSK spinner in the eighth over hammering him for towering sixes. He was ultimately dismissed by Lungi Ngidi in the 12th over. In all, Royals hit 17 sixes with Samson accounting for nine of them and Smith and Archer having four each in their kitties. While Smith played the second fiddle initially, Samson took the CSK spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Piyush Chawla to task taking 95 runs of eight overs collectively.
Introduced into the attack in the seventh over, Jadeja was clobbered for consecutive sixes by Samson before Chawla went for four sixes in his first over -- three by Samson and one by Smith. Samson, thus, brought up his quickest IPL fifty in just 19 balls with the help of one boundary and six hits over the fence. If that was not enough for Chawla, the leg-spinner again leaked in his next over as both Samson and Smith took him to the cleaners.
