Sanju Samson is among the sweetest strikers of the cricket ball going around. He doesn't rely on brute force to thwack the ball out of the park but sheer timing and placement. The Indian dasher, who captains Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, celebrates his 27th birthday today and it is an auspicious occasion to watch him in full flow. Samson's forte is his strong base and a clean swing of the bat, which enable him to generate massive power behind his shots. Marvel at the ease and grace with which the right-hander clears the ropes.
