Sanju Samson Leads Rajasthan To First IPL 2020 Victory

Sanju Samson will be a big player for Rajasthan in IPL 2020. A lot of Rajasthan’s scoring depends on him. In yesterday’s match against CSK, he did not disappoint the Pink army fans and his teammates. He went after the bowlers from the word go and hit every other ball for a six or a four. Moreover, players like Piyush Chawla were left with no answers as the team tried everything to stop him. By the time he got out, it was probably too late as the damage happened. He scored a whopping 74 from just 32 balls.

Everyone thought that the pitch got made for batting. However, Sanju had a different view. He felt it was not an easy pitch to bat on. Moreover, he said:

β€œI had a really fun time in the middle. It was not a good wicket. It was slow and I had to wait for the ball to come to me. When they bowled on a good length it was not easy to hit.”
