Sanju Samson is known for doing big shots and being big comes naturally to him and this is the main reason why fans are always amazed when he is in full stream. Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri was no different and he praised the Rajasthan Royals captain who scored 55 runs in a short time in their win against SunRisers Hyderabad. This knock allowed Rajasthan to make a 210/6 record and then the bowlers put on a complete performance to dismantle the SRH lineup.

“Again Sanju Samson, he does a beautiful shot. I think his shot selection is very good. He realizes the rhythm of the goal so the ball doesn’t spin, he finds a straight boundary. He uses the passing rhythm by getting a good position and he has the power to clear where -where in the world, “Shastri told Star Sports during the mid-half performance of the RR-SRH game in Pune.

“He loves hitting in Pune, he scored a century earlier here in the IPL. Even today, he looks in incredible touch, if he was there for 5 overs, maybe (RR would score) 230. He showed aggression needed and it is a good partnership with Devdutt Padikkal, ”the former Team India coach added.

In the match between Rajasthan and Hyderabad, the latter won the toss and chose to play bowling first. Sanju Samson scored 55 while Devdutt Padikkal played 41 beats to help the Rajasthan Royals get past the 200 -run mark. Padikkal and Samson were involved in a 73-run stand for the third wicket.


Samson scored 55 runs with just 27 balls with the help of 3 fours and 5 sixes. Hyderabad was capped at 149/7 and finally, Rajasthan recorded a comfortable 61 -run victory at the Mumbai Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

Yuzvendra Chahal scored three times for the Royal while Prasidh Krishna and Trent Boult each did two strokes.
