This innings left several experts and Rajasthan Royals fan wondering what the result of their Punjab Kings' clash be if Sanju Samson would have taken a run and given the strike to Morris to face the final ball. 

“I was gonna run back no matter what because Sanju was hitting it so sweetly. People underestimate how fast I run. Sanju was hitting it like a dream that night. I wouldn't have been too upset if he had hit the last ball for a six,” said Morris.
