During last night's Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) clash between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC), DC owner Parth Jindal got really animated after the dismissal of opposition skipper Sanju Samson. 

Chasing a towering target of 222, Sanju Samson looked in dangerous touch before eventually getting dismissed in the 16th over after scoring a quickfire 46-ball 86. 

Jindal let his emotions roll out from the stands and could be seen screaming in sheer exhilaration. 

The DC owner, following the incident, took to his social media account on X(formerly Twitter) earlier today to explain the reason for his reaction. 

"Was lovely interacting with Manoj and Sanju - was incredible to witness his power hitting at the Kotla - he got us all extremely worried and hence the animated reaction when he was out! Had the pleasure of congratulating him as well. Great win by our boys!"
