Rising Pune Supergiants' bowlers were taken to the cleaners by Sanju Samson and Chris Morris who helped DD reach an impressive 205 in the first innings. While the Twitterati praised the batsmen, they were more interested in trolling the ever reliable Ashok Dinda who finished with an economy of 12.
Sanju Samson’s brilliant century and Chris Morris’ nine-ball 38 took Delhi Daredevils to 205 paving the way for 98-run win over Rising Pune Supergiant in the ninth match of the IPL. A Steve Smith-less Pune were able to manage just 108, before succumbing to their second straight defeat of the season.
Brief scores: Delhi Daredevils 205/4 (Sanju Samson 102, Chris Morris 38*; Imran Tahir 1/24, Deepak Chahar 1/35) beat Rising Pune Supergiant 108/10 (Mayank Agarwal 20, Rajat Bhatia 16; Zaheer khan 3/20, Amit Mishra 3/11) by 97 runs.

The only thing that jumps higher than Ashoke Dinda is Dinda's economy rate.— SAGAR (@sagarcasm) April 11, 2017
Dinda can't play for all teams, so god created Ishant Sharma, Binny, Tishara Perera.— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) April 7, 2017
Sanju Samson is as explosive as Sam-sung phones. #RPSvDD— Joint Ventur (@JointVentur) April 11, 2017

There is something about this name!
There's something sixy in the name 'Chris'. Whether it's Morris or Gayle. #RPSvDD— SAGAR (@sagarcasm) April 11, 2017
Ben Stokes = Yoda?
Maybe RPS invested the 14 crores on the wrong player?
Chris Morris sends 14 crores up for the toss. #RPSvDD— Sameer Allana (@HitmanCricket) April 11, 2017
