New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils' Sanju Samson on Saturday produced a brilliant fielding effort to send back dangerous Mumbai Indians opener Jos Buttler with a direct throw in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

The 6th over started with Chris Morris bowling to Nitish Rana, and the Mumbai Indian batsmen tried to steal a single with Buttler agreeing to Rana's call. But a super-fast Samson swooped in and produced an underarm throw, which beat the batsman and hit the stumps.

Here's the video:

Buttler departed after scoring 28 off 18 balls with the help of three fours and two sixes.

In Delhi's previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders also, Samson produced a stunning fielding effort at boundary to deny a sure six.

Put into bat, hosts Mumbai struggled to 142/8 in their 20 overs' play.
