Coming, recording, breaking repeat; Sanju and Rajasthan with a relentless game
Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals are literally playing in the new season of the IPL. After one match, Rajasthan will ask themselves what’s new in the next match.
Rajasthan is breaking the record and breaking the record without giving it to anyone else. Rajasthan set a record in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Rajasthan have the highest team score of the season. Rajasthan beat Kolkata by 217 runs in 20 overs. But the KKR footfall could not cross the runway.
But in the next match, Rajasthan made that achievement a legend. Pink City have once again named their highest team total this season.
This time it was Delhi Capitals who warmed up the Rajasthan Army bat. Rajasthan scored 222 for 2 in the allotted overs.
As always, the openers put together a great partnership. The openers put on 155 for the first wicket. Devdutt Padikkal scored 54 off 35 balls while Buttler scored 116 off 65 balls.
Just before the match, the highest individual score in the tournament was 130. But by the time the Rajasthan Royals finished batting, it had risen to 116. Both were won by Jose Butler.
Sanju, who came after Devdam, did not table at all. Sanju scored 46 off 19 balls with 5 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 242.11. Sanju ended the innings with a six off the last ball of the 20th over.
In reply, Delhi got off to a good start. When openers Prithviraj Shah and Warner added speed to the new Delhi innings, the famous Krishna gave Rajasthan an indispensable break through.
Warner, who scored 28 off 14 balls, was bowled by Sanju. Sarfraz followed suit and Ashwin returned with a quick wicket.
At present, Delhi are 2 for 95 with 9 overs to spare.
