Gambhir, Manjrekar, & Many Others Go Mad As Samson Scores The First Hundred Of IPL 2019


Rajasthan Royals won the toss and decided to bat first. Captain Ajinkya Rahane wasn’t sure how the pitch would behave but expected it to behave the same for 40 overs. Yes, there was a ‘Bulter’ in the house but it wasn’t his night to be as Rashid Khan, the man who has often troubled Jos Butler foxed the wicket-keeper batsman early in the innings.

While Ajinkya Rahane was playing the sheet-anchor at one end, Sanju Samson playing the role of the aggressor at the other. While neither Sanju Samson went all guns blazing, it wasn’t a bad effort taking the pitch and the bowling attack of the Sunrisrers Hyderabad into consideration. Having said that, Rajasthan Royals would want to address the problem of having too many classical top-order players and fewer power-hitters which is the need of the hour in T20 cricket.
