Indian keeper-batter Sanju Samson met a differently-abled kid in Kerala and won hearts as he played cricket with him. In a video that has been going massively viral on social media, the differently-abled kid also almost got Samson's wicket, leaving the youngster amazed.

A video had already gone viral on social media in late January as the kid expressed his desire to meet Samson. Despite being differently-abled, the boy could be seen catching a cricket ball and hitting the football with ease. The 29-year-old had finally fulfilled the young boy's wishes.

Sanju Samson to return as captain of the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2024:

Meanwhile, the keeper-batter is currently gearing up for IPL 2024, beginning on March 22nd. The 29-year-old will return as the captain of the Rajasthan Royals, which he took charge of in 2022. While Samson took the franchise into the finals in 2022, but they failed to make it to the playoffs the following year.

Samson's most recent international outing came against Afghanistan in a T20I at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. He copped criticism after departing for a golden duck. The Kerala-born cricketer has also faced backlash for his often inconsistent run in IPL seasons.

The inaugural IPL champions will open their campaign against the Lucknow Super Giants on March 24th at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
