Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson displayed a great leadership skill in the match number 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 as his skills played a huge role in getting his team back in the match.
After being asked to bat first after losing the toss, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) lost the wicket of captain Virat Kohli on the first ball of the match.
But then they made a tremendous comeback as Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell led a great comeback. The duo added a partnership of 127 runs for the 3rd wicket.
RCB were in comfortable position to post a big score on the board, until captain Sanju Samson’s great leadership skills helped Rajasthan back in the match.
After losing the wicket of Faf du Plessis, RCB lost regular wickets and in the end posted 189 runs on the board when once it was looking likely to go past 230.
This all thanks to brilliant captaincy by Sanju Samson and decision making in the match. Here’s how Twitterati reacted.
Aakash Chopra: "Sanju is really really underrated as a captain. Two captains have stood out this season – one is MS Dhoni, other is Sanju Samson"#RCBvRR #RCBvsRR— Cricket.com (@weRcricket) April 23, 2023
I have not seen a single captain since the last IPL who's comfortable throwing the ball to Chahal when carnage is on from the batting side.— Gurkirat Singh Gill (@gurkiratsgill) April 23, 2023
Today as well, despite 2 RHBs on carnage, Sanju preferred Ashwin over Chahal.
Observed the same pattern with Hardik, Dhawan & Rohit.
