When Sanju Samson was controversially given out by the on-field umpires, emotions ran high for Parth Jindal, chairman and co-owner of Delhi Capitals.

Leading RR’s challenging chase of 222 against DC at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, Samson was batting valiantly on 86 when he pulled a delivery from Mukesh Kumar, only to be caught by Shai Hope near the long-off rope.

Despite TV replays failing to provide a definitive view on whether the catch was clean, the benefit of the doubt went in favor of the hosts, resulting in Samson’s dismissal. Despite a heated discussion with the umpires, Samson had to begrudgingly leave the field.

Jindal’s animated reaction to Samson’s dismissal was evident, reflecting the intensity of the moment. However, after the game concluded, Jindal extended a cordial gesture by meeting and congratulating Samson and RR owner Manoj Badale on the sidelines of Kotla. The heartwarming interaction was shared on DC’s official handle, highlighting Jindal’s acknowledgment of Samson’s selection for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Parth also extended his congratulations to the RR skipper on being selected for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup,” the caption of the video read.

Despite Samson’s departure, Rajasthan Royals found themselves in a tight spot, as acknowledged by their head coach Kumar Sangakkara. Despite the contentious dismissal, Sangakkara believed that his team should have still emerged victorious in the IPL match against Delhi Capitals.
