IPL 2021: Sanju Samson opens up on fall off after defeat to CSK

Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson smashed a brilliant century in his first match of this season. However, despite of his century, Rajasthan Royals lost the opening match to Punjab Kings. After this, Rajasthan team has played two more matches but Samson failed to perform against Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings.

After the loss to Chennai, Sanju Samson said – “It’s very important to maintain a good composure, this format demands us to score at a higher risk rate; hence, it’s very normal to get out often. I keep working on the basics and giving myself some time at the centre.”

“The No. 3 (for England, Dawid Malan) is the No. 1 in the world (in ICC rankings). My job here is to try and score as many runs for the team and get a good start. That’s the way I play when I bat up the order. When I went up the order, it wasn’t any easy wicket and I’m pleased with both the departments.

“I thought as a team we played really well and everyone contributed. Once the left-handers came in I knew I had a good chance of bowling whenever the captain needs me. I feel it’s a good wicket for the spinners and if you land the ball in the right areas you’ve always got a chance.”
