Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson expressed his surprise and disappointment over his team’s current position on the points table after their last league match in IPL 2023 against Punjab Kings.

Although the Royals had a strong belief that they would emerge victorious inside certain overs with their batting powerhouse, the game took an unexpected turn, leaving them behind RCB on net run rate.

Sanju Samson revealed that when Shimron Hetmyer was on a roll during the chase, they were confident of wrapping up the game by the 18.5-over mark. The team’s strong lineup gave them hope, but they were taken aback by their current standing in the tournament. The Royals possess immense talent and potential, and their current position on the table does not reflect their capabilities.

Throughout the season, Sanju Samson has consistently praised young batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal, who has showcased exceptional maturity in his performances. Jaiswal’s consistent contributions have left a lasting impact on Samson, as he believes the youngster displays the composure of a player with extensive experience in T20 cricket. The captain’s admiration for Jaiswal’s growth has been a constant talking point for him in recent games.

“I think at the end of the game, when Hety (Hetmyer) was going strong we thought we will finish by 18.5. We have a quality team and it is a little shocking to see where we stand on the table. I have been talking about Jasiwal almost every game. He has shown maturity. It feels he has played 100 T20Is. Almost 90 percent of the times we feel Boult will take a wicket in the first over. We were under pressure in the last few games.”
