Rajasthan Royals (RR) faced Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) yesterday in which Rajasthan lost. With this victory, Hyderabad still has playoff hopes. Rajasthan batted first after losing the toss in this match. During this time, there was no durable batting from Rajasthan. Samson was bowled by Jason Holder for 36 runs. If we figure out the performance, Sanju Samson has not played any big inning, except for the first two matches.
Samson made a grand IPL debut, he first piled up a stormy half-century against Chennai Super Kings, and later against Kings XI Punjab. In just two matches he scored 159 runs in 74 balls. That time his average was close to 80, and the strike rate was 215. Rajasthan Royals recorded a victory in both of their matches due to these two superb performances.
Sanju Samson, the wicket-keeper batsman of Rajasthan Royals, failed to maintain consistency even in this IPL. This young batsman started off in a stormy manner in the 13th season of IPL and gathered huge applause. But, shortly after that, he started to flop, after which the criticism also started. He kept throwing his wicket by playing bad shots. In the next nine games, Samson played 102 balls, and could manage only 113 runs with a poor average near 10, and strike rate around a hundred.
In his 11 matches played so far in this season, he scored 272 runs with the help of two half-centuries. Sanju Samson himself is one of the major reasons for Rajasthan’s consistent defeats.
Sanju Samson is popularly known as one of the youngest Twenty20 cricket stars and IPL. He is a hard working player and leaves no stone unturned to keep himself fit for the game. Though all sports and training facilities were affected by lockdown, Sanju Samson kept up his fitness and diet regime to maintain his best for the sport.
Ups and downs are the part of the game, and we hope he will come back again and perform well for him and his team.
