After watching Sanju Samson register a perfectly timed century from the dug-out, Chris Morris delivered a memorable performance by facing just 9 deliveries!
Morris had no time to settle but this did not work against the right-handed batsman who looked in the form of his life. He smashed 38 runs in 9 balls hitting the ball over the rope thrice for huge sixes! Without his late surge, Delhi Daredevils managed to post a healthy total of 205 runs against the Rising Pune Supergiant.
Twitter was mightily impressed by Morris' entertainment filled cameo, here are the best tweets:
Utter brilliance, great stillness, what a knock from Chris Morris – after AB and Maxwell, yet another treat.#RPSvDD

Ravi Shastri after Morris's six "A flick of the wrists and way she goes into the crowd".
This reminded me of Yuvi's six against Brett Lee

There's something sixy in the name 'Chris'. Whether it's Morris or Gayle. #RPSvDD
