Sanju Samson hit back at the selectors with a fine knock

However, skipper Samson led his team from the front and played a blistering knock of 47 runs to provide a superb foundation for the middle-order batters to play their natural game on. He went gung ho from the fourth over itself, where he smashed Yash Dayal for a delightful boundary.

In the next over, Mohammed Shami was subjected to even harsher treatment as he conceded not one but two boundaries, whereas all hell broke loose in the sixth over, bowled by Alzarri Joseph. Samson smashes a couple of sixes in that over to take RR’s scorte to 55/1 at the end of the powerplay.

Later on, R Sai Kishore was also dispatched for a couple of boundaries, but the left-arm spinner eventually got the better of Samson in the penultimate ball of the tenth over. Batting on 47, Samson tried bringing up his half-century with a big hit, but ended up giving a simple catch to Alzarri Joseph at long-on.

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has snubbed Samson from the national team, despite being in good touch for Rajasthan Royals. The men in blue will play five T20Is against South Africa between  9th June to 19th June, and with many of the major players rested, KL Rahul will lead the squad.

India Squad for T20Is against South Africa: KL Rahul (Capt), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(VC) (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Venkatesh Iyer, Y Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, R Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.
