The remaining ten added up to a meager 21. RR is having a bad second half of the current season. After suffering a fourth loss in the previous five games. They had five victories in their first eight games when they started their campaign.

“I Was Thinking About It”: Sanju Samson

“That is a great question actually. I was thinking about it while sitting in the dugout, seeing the batting collapse and where it went wrong. Sorry, I do not have an answer, to be very honest. I am just thinking through it. Our top three were scoring runs in the first few games. It’s too early to review the batting collapse. You have to go hard in the powerplay, knowing that the wicket will slow down as the ball gets older. Credit has to go out to the RCB bowlers and especially their teammates.”

Samson said

Rajasthan Royals’ Position

“That could have gone to the wire. It could have been a tight match if we had a decent powerplay and, through the middle, if played spin well. I felt that was a par score on this wicket.”

Samsom said

Astonished by his team’s poor batting collapse, Sanju Samson similarly appeared to be at a loss for words during the post-game interview. Samson claimed that the side’s strategy was to take advantage of the Powerplay and that it failed, but the RR captain emphasized that the defeat would be difficult to accept. The Royals had a good start to the season, winning four of their first five games, but since then, the team has been incredibly inconsistent, losing six of their next eight games.

When Samson was pressed to identify the cause of the season’s shocking decline, the Royals captain admitted he didn’t know.
