Rajasthan Royals’ Skipper Sanju Samson brought joy to a specially-abled fan by chatting with him after the match, giving him a Rajasthan Royals cap, and snapping a selfie together.

During the Ranji Trophy match between Kerala and Uttar Pradesh, Sanju Samson, the Indian cricket team’s wicketkeeper-batter, captured everyone’s hearts with a heartwarming gesture. The excitement for Samson was evident as fans flocked to the Sanatana Dharma College Ground in Alappuzha. After the match ended in a draw, Samson, also Kerala’s skipper, delighted fans by personally engaging with them. He graciously posed for snapshots, creating memorable moments with the enthusiastic crowd.

In a heartfelt video shared by Rajasthan Royals on X, Samson’s act of gifting a Rajasthan Royals cap to a specially-abled fan and joining in photos with him and others garnered widespread praise, swiftly becoming a viral sensation across social media platforms.

On the match front, the game between Kerala and UP ended in a draw. UP batted first, scoring 302 runs. Kerala replied with 243 runs. In their second innings, UP declared at 323 runs, with Aryan Juyal and Priyam Garg both hitting centuries. Setting a target of 383 runs, Kerala reached 72 for 2 before the game was called off.

Samson has also secured a spot in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan, set to kick off in Mohali on Thursday. However, Hardik Pandya, who briefly led in T20Is, is out due to an ankle injury suffered during the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Additionally, Surykumar Yadav will also miss the series due to injury.
