Soon, its fans flooded social media sites with memes and jokes, praising him for his efforts.

Earlier Samson won the toss and elected to field first. DC post a modest total of 147/8. The credit goes to Jaydev Unadkat who struck thrice with the new ball in powerplay overs getting the wickets of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithivi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane.
