Former RCB and New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori seriously thinks Sanju Samson understands only one way to bat and therefore should stick to it.
Rajasthan Royals will face Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2022 Qualifier 2 in Ahmedabad on Friday.
The appearance of Harshal Patel, the death overs expert who is an expert in bowling inexpensive spells, implies opposition teams must strike from the beginning to avoid the tension of heading bug against the RCB’s distinctive bowling attack.
A think it all depends on how Rajasthan’s skipper Sanju Samson bats in the middle order, as he is capable of taking the match away from the opponents in an issue of overs.
Samson had been at his free-flowing best in Qualifier 1 against Gujarat Titans as well, but then as has happened many times before, he ended up getting out when he appeared to be set.
But Samson’s 47 off 26 balls laid the groundwork for Jos Buttler’s big score, which wasn’t enough in the end.
‘Samson could produce a match-winning performance’: Daniel Vettori
Former RCB and New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori seriously thinks Samson only understands one way to bat and that he must stick to it.
“I believe Samson only continues to play one way, which is great to watch. I keep hoping he can bat deep, but I doubt he could indeed change his approach or tempo in such a crucial match. Who understands, if he hits the ball for a long time, he might produce a match-winning performance, “ESPNCricinfo quoted Daniel Vettori.
Qualifier-2 will be played on Friday between RR and RCB at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
