Unpacking Sanju Samson’s “Game-Changer” Comment after Royals victory

Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson believes that the toss was very important in the match against the Mumbai Indians and, in the end, turned out to be a “game changer.”.

Rajasthan Royals maintained their unbeaten run in the IPL, beating Mumbai Indians by six wickets.

After the match, Sanju said, “I think the toss was the game changer. The wicket was too sticky to start off, and the experience of Boult and Burger helped us. He’s been playing for 10–15 years, and that is what we expected with the new ball. We didn’t expect 4-5 wickets to fall, but we knew our bowlers would do well.”

Samson further added, “We know we have big individuals in our team, but where we stand out is that everyone recognizes their role, does it, and moves on. The likes of Ash and Chahal realized we had a good powerplay, and they kept it tight without really looking for wickets.” 

Sanju Samson also praised the team’s lead pitcher, Yuzi Chahal, who was phenomenal with the ball as the leg spinner picked up three wickets, giving away just 11 runs in his four-over quota.

Speaking about Chahal Samson, he said, “I think he was really fired up for this IPL, and he’s been doing well for the past 2-3 years for us,’
