Sanju Samson delivers when the team needs him the most. Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain Sanju Samson smacks 82 runs from 57 balls against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Samson helps the Rajasthan Royals reach a total of 164/5 after 20 overs. In the previous match against the Delhi Capitals, Samson scored 70 runs off 53 balls at a strike rate of 132.08. However, Delhi managed to beat them.
Rajasthan Royals started on the back foot after an early wicket of Evin Lewis. However, the skipper, Sanju Samson was handed the responsibility to take over the game. After an incredible knock against the Delhi Capitals in match number 36 of the IPL, Samson looks to continue the same in this match as well.
Sanju Samson puts on a show to help his side put up a fighting total. The Rajasthan Royals captain hit 82 runs from 57 balls at a strike rate of 143.86. He hit seven 4s and three 6s in the process. However, Siddhart Kaul dismissed the skipper after he tried to go long. Samson tried to hit a big shot but didn’t get the right contact off the bat which resulted in Jason Holder taking a catch at long-on.
Nonetheless, Rajasthan puts up a target of 165 for the Sunrisers Hyderabad to chase in 20 overs. Furthermore, Sunrisers Hyderabad drops their star batsman, David Warner replacing him with Jason Roy. A big second inning coming up soon. Can the Rajasthan Royals do justice to Sanju Samson’s innings or will it go in vain once again?
