Mercurial Samson goes big when it matters

Sanju Samson put behind a dodgy year to take his chance at No. 3 and produce a top-class innings for an inexperienced Delhi Daredevils batting line-up


Comprehensive DD


Delhi's biggest margin of victory before this game, back in March 2010

Short-term Mayank


Mayank Agarwal has gone past 30 only ten times in 47 IPL innings before today

A long time coming


This was Delhi Daredevils' first 200-plus total since April 2012. In all, Daredevils have only posted three 200-plus totals.

End-overs madness


Runs scored by Daredevils in the last four overs - the third-highest in the last four overs of an IPL innings. The top two scores belong to RCB - 89 and 77.

Zampa's forgettable night


Number of runs conceded by Adam Zampa - his worst figures in T20 cricket.

Samson's best


Samson's highest T20 score, before today, against Jharkhand in the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2015. This is also his longest T20 innings.

Middle-overs rut


Number of runs Daredevils scored in the middle overs (7-15), after slapping 62 in the Powerplay

Samson ends 50 drought


Sanju Samson's fifty was his first in 16 innings across all T20s. He last hit a fifty in the 2016 IPL against Mumbai Indians in Delhi

Strong start


Daredevils' Powerplay score was their best in five years. The last time they topped this effort was in 2012, against the erstwhile Deccan Chargers.
