Stokes and Samson’s storm came again

After this, Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson took the news of Mumbai’s bowlers fiercely and created havoc. While Stokes completed the fifty in 28 balls, Sanju played just 27 balls to reach here. Both of them shot a lot from Trent Bolt to Jasprit Bumrah.

Ben Stokes Century
