IPL 2022: Rajasthan Royals put up a clinical effort, outplaying Sunrisers Hyderabad in all three departments of the game to win by 61 runs at the MCA stadium.

Rajasthan pacers caused havoc on Hyderabad batting, reducing them to 9 for 3 thanks to Prasidh Krishna and Trent Boult.

“It was a very different wicket than what we thought. If you bowled Test match lengths, the wicket was helping fast bowlers,” said Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson in the post-match presentation.

Sanju Samson took the lead early on, scoring 55 off 27 balls to help his team reach 210 for 6 in 20 overs. For his dazzling performance, Samson was named ‘Player of the Match.’

“No long term goals, just want to win as much as possible and contribute to team’s victory. Working on my fitness, game awareness, understanding of conditions, and choosing my scoring options. Not rushing. I would like to spend a lot of time in the middle knowing I can catch up anytime,” explained Sanju Samson.

The Rajasthan Royals team implemented their strategy flawlessly, as their team looked formidable in every aspect, demonstrating how brilliantly Sanju Samson and Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara bought players in the auction.

“Yes, I had some say. Having a leader like Sanga, gave me a final option. Luckily everyone, a lot of cricketing brains have worked together to get a good squad. I think every season we come with great dreams, it’s a franchise that takes good care of us. Our owners trust us, give us space. One game at a time,” told Samson.

Rajasthan Royals will face five-time champions Mumbai Indians on April 2 after a winning start.
